The time of the Trolley is a look back at the era when the Trolley Car dominated the urban transportation scene. The book goes back to origins of the street railway, starting with horse cars and cable cars. It progress through the early experiments with electrical operation, to the maturation of the technology to the twilight of the era. The book is richly illustrated with literally hundreds of photos dating back to the 1800's. The book focuses mainly on Trolley Cars in the United States, but some coverage is included of these cars in Canada, Mexico and other locations around the world. This book is a fast paced overview of this bygone technology and era, and is a nice addition to the book collections of history lovers in general or "Trolley Fans" in particular. I highly recommend it.
