Steamship travel was revolutionary in the 19th century and the fastest way for people to travel and transport goods. Astrid Drew will describe the bustling traffic of luxury passenger ships and commercial transports that once plied the waters of Narragansett Bay at the Monday, June 18th meeting of the East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society. Astrid is the director of the 3-year-old Steamship Museum at 2500 Post Road in Warwick. The new facility is operated by the Steamship Historical Society of America. Astrid will show illustrations of these early steamships from the Museum’s collection.
The program, at the Old Jail, 110 King Street, East Greenwich, is free and open to the public. It begins with a potluck supper at 6:30; the program begins at 7:30. Please call Sue Curado at 884-4643 or e-mail her at lencu@cox.net so she can set a place for you.
