Trolleys

Trolleys were an important part of life in Connecticut from the late 1800s through the mid-20th century. Before family ownership of an automobile was common, the trolley (or interurban) provided an affordable, convenient way to travel around town and between towns.
In the 1920s, just about every metropolitan area in the country could boast interurban service but before the end of 1930s, the interurban was almost dead.
