Picked up a set of San Francisco trolleys from the 1992 Centennial.

Nice cards, Michael.

:bow:

They appear to be 4x6 cards, right ?

Regards, Dave L.


I am curious how you get your photos.

Do you scan them ?

Here is an interesting set of three cards.
It is the same scene published years apart.

The card with only an address on one side would be pre 1907,
when it was not permitted to write on the back with the addressee.

The other cards have written messages on the side and bottom.
The bottom card is dated 1911.

Regards, Dave L.

Great cards, Michael.

Here is one,
although not a trolley, it is electric.

I have this card because I had a cab ride,
from Harrisburg to Philadelphia and back,
in one of these.

I rode in Number 934.

Regards, Dave L.

Dave

What did the engineer say about her ?

I once was told they weren't happy with them,
and gave them some bad names.

They tried to slip their wheels all the time,
and the anti slip device throttled them down.

Plenty of power and little weight, quite different,
to the E60s and GG1s they were used to.

On that day #934 was malfunctioning.
I believe it had to do with the dead-man switch.

Every few minutes,
the engineer had to manually reset something.

He was not happy.

He moaned and groaned,
the whole four hours of the trip.

Regards, Dave L.

I wonder what you who have duplicate cards do with them ?

I've been putting my duplicates in another album,
hoping to trade with another collector.

Years ago, when I could buy a bundle of cards at train shows,
I often bought duplicates of cards in my collection.

Just curious.

Dave

Would you please post a good scan or photograph of the nice interurban,

with the stamp on it, in the middle of the picture ?

That's a beautiful car.
