This episode features the New England Wireless and Steam Museum in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, home to a vast collection of working stationary steam engines that once powered New England through the industrial age. The museum also collects relics from the dawn of wireless communication, including the Massie Wireless Station – once used by the Providence Journal to send news back and forth from Point Judith to Block Island.
