"To Charles P. Clark, one of the most far-sighted presidents The New Haven Railroad has ever had, who visualized the possibilities of electric traction as applied to steam railroads, belongs the credit for electrifying the Nantasket Beach Line, the event we are commemorating tonight.
"It is of interest to note here that the metropolitan district of Boston was also the scene of an even more important pioneer event in the field of transportation, for in 1826, nearly a hundred and twenty years ago, not ten miles from the State House on Beacon Hill, the first Railroad in America was built and operated.
"These two pioneer projects-first the railroad itself, and then electrification-the results of which have been so important to our history, are examples of the spirit which has made this country as great as it is, and Boston may well take pride in both of them."
