Trolley Woodwork I
I am always amazed by trolley woodwork. It seems like the auto has brought less civilized travel. How can I jump from woodwork to mass transit? The only car that has this kind of real woodwork in it is one that the top 2% of our economy can afford. This trolley was built in 1947. Not many cars out there built in the last century that still look as good as this trolley.
Yes, I can get to another city much faster in a car but I have to believe I could get around my city much better and in significant comfort. Seems like the whole current economy is predicated on oil consumption and driving. Trollley travel just seems so much more elegant to me.
