SALEM, NH: TROLLEYS, CANOBIE LAKE AND ROCKINGHAM PARK.

SalemNewHampshireIoA[Book: Douglas W. Seed & Katherine Khalife – 1996 – 16x23cm – 128 Pages – Many B&W photos]. The clang of the first trolley bell in 1902 signalled the beginning of a century of excitement and celebrity that would transform the tiny town of Salem, New Hampshire, into a recreation destination for millions. With the trolley company’s opening of Canobie Lake Park in August 1902 and the “big gamble” on Rockingham Park in 1906, New Englanders, regardless of age, ethnicity, or social status now shared a recreational common denominator. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
