Olneyville on the Move!

Wagon Wheel.jpg

In August of 2002, Tom Uva pulled this wagon wheel out of the Woony during the Narragansett Bay Commission River Restoration Initiative. (If intact, this river-eroded artifact from the 1880s would be taller than he is.)

… And John Motta discovered the tire of a popular two-seater car from 1910.
