From the dust jacket- "Comprehensively and painstakingly researched over a quarter of a century, Splendor Sailed the Sound is the definitive maritime history of the New Haven Railroad, its predecessors, its allies and its opponents. The work includes a careful analysis of the technology, the economics, and the cultural context of the steamboats; how and why things happened the way they did. Many of the photographs reproduced here have never before been published, or have only recently been unearthed."
