History of the Norwich & New York Transportation Company

This collection was either kept, or perhaps collected, by Alonzo Ashcraft, of Groton, Connecticut, an employee of the Norwich & New York Transportation Company for over 40 years. Ashcraft served aboard various steamers of the "Norwich Line," such as the CITY OF LAWRENCE, and the CITY OF WORCESTER, which connected Norwich and New London, Connecticut with New York City.
