First Richmond Trolley & Conductor

Photo from the Richmond Times Dispatch archives of the first Richmond Trolley and it’s conductor in 1888. The paper published a retrospective article in 1935 about the history of the Trolley, writing:
“Many men and women are living who vividly recall that day in 1888 when a queer-looking little car started on its way over Richmond streets. It scared old ladies and frightened dogs. But the success of that undertaking marked the first definite stride in the development of electric railway transportation in America.”
