Riding in the western trolleys during the early 1900s.

Interurban trolley exhibit in the Trolley barn at Historic Fort Missoula

Getting to and from work today is a matter of getting in the car or perhaps a bus or even the subway and many of us use public transportation out of convenience. But what was it like for our ancestors about a hundred years ago? In some cases it was an easier and even safer means of getting from point A to point B..Wooden trolley cars were used not only in big city urban areas around the turn of the 20th century but also smaller cities and even in rural areas… I discovered an interurban trolley that was used for twenty years in the early 1900s. at an exhibit in Missoula, Montana.
