This handsome and colorful book presents a wealth of trolley tales, songs, photographs, and cartoons that recapture the happy screech, clang, and hiss of the trolley. Here are the first horsecars, and all the nostalgic lore which attended the purchase of streetcar horses. New York's Third Avenue Line, which kept 1700 horses in its stable, had a preference for grays on the theory that they were apt to mind the heat least. Mules were preferred on some lines, especially in the South, since they ate less, cost less, and minded the heat less.
