Cambridge Growth

A Red Line train heads northbound into the subway portion in Cambridge in this view, its very brief outdoor spell across the Charles River and surrounding area almost at an end.  Fairly new buildings line Main St.  MIT is close by.   

Public ownership of the area's trolley, bus, and subway network began in 1949 with the creation of the Massachusetts Transit Authority.  MBTA came into being in 1964.
