No seatbelts on those cars, I bet.

:shocked:

No shade and no seat belts. 
About as basic as you can get. 

Take a couple of benches,
and bolt them to the deck of a flatcar. 

Voila! 
Passenger service.

While looking for postcards I've stumbled across other collectables.

Not trolley, and not a postcard, but still an interesting item to add to my collection.

Recently acquired another trolley postcard of San Francisco Muni.

Okay, this isn't a postcard, but one thing leads to another. 

Postcards to timetables, and timetables to brochures.


This is from 1957... Over 60 years old. 

For those of us that model a particular time period and location,
postcards and other material can help us to tie into the era.

Michael,

I like that card of the trolley.

The views of cars are what I especially look for.


Keep looking!
Regards, Dave L. :old dude:

I was able to add a new card to the collection. 

Still looking for anyone who collects postcards with trolleys depicted. 

Regards, Dave L.

The link to Zuckerberg's mind-numbing advertising & spy-ware site, doesn't work

Not surprised.


Okay, try this link:

https://www.ronsbooks.com/CENTRAL-CALIFORNIA-TRACTION_p_17222.html


On Facebook there is a group page for the Central California Traction Company. 

You can order the book directly from Dave Stanley for $40 plus $6 postage.
