紐約地鐵的開端 The Secret Subway
From an acclaimed author and a New York Times Best Illustrated artist comes the fascinating, little-known—and true!—story of New York City’s first subway.
New York City in the 1860s was a mess: crowded, disgusting, filled with garbage. You see, way back in 1860, there were no subways, just cobblestone streets. That is, until Alfred Ely Beach had the idea for a fan-powered train that would travel underground. On February 26, 1870, after fifty-eight days of drilling and painting and plastering, Beach unveiled his masterpiece—and throngs of visitors took turns swooshing down the track.
The Secret Subway will wow readers, just as Beach’s underground train wowed riders over a century ago.
你知道最早的紐約地鐵是筒狀的嗎？他比我們現在乘坐的電力發電地鐵早了30幾年出現在紐約的地下。讓這本繪本帶你挖出這個幾乎被人遺忘的故事。 Time Out有具體的描述喔! http://www.timeout.com/newyork/blog/the-early-new-york-subway-was-a-giant-vacuum-tube-041116
