A lost treasure found!

Post by 25Hz » Wed Jul 23, 2014 6:09 am

I always heard about my grandma taking the trolley home from trenton to bristol in the 1930's. I finally found a photo with the calhoun street bridge (trenton-morrisville) with the trolley tracks and wire on it!!!!!

I've been looking for a photo like this for 8 years.

On top of this find, it is cool to think that this bridge turns 130 years old this october!!!
Next stop the square, journal square station next!

That's trolley track, bi directional on the South side of the bridge.
Was she able to ride through in the 1930s? Other accounts say that the through service stopped in the 1920s, and you had to change cars and companies at Pennsylvania Ave. & Bridge St., Morrisville. The last Bristol car ran about 1932, the Morisville cars stopped in 1934.

Here's a couple of minimal pictures of the line in final days.
It does show the barn.
