George Speaks to New York Numismatic Club Kicking off Centennial Year!
January 21, 2008



December 2008 will mark the centennial of the founding in 1908 of the New York Numismatic Club.

As a member since 1981, I felt it important to participate some way in the centennial, so I made myself to be available as the after-dinner speaker for the January Meeting, as I would be in town the week prior for the NY International show.

My topic was a discussion of 19th and early 20th century public transportation in the City of New York - Omnibus, Horse Car, Street Car, Elevated Railroad, Subway and Ferry. These were augmented by a selection of fare tickets which ranged from the well engraved, to very plain typeset and offset printed items.
