Bartow & City Island Stagecoach

The Barton & City Island stagecoach line served City Island from Pelham Bay Park, in the Bronx, New York. Eventually, the stagecoaches were replaced by horsecars, which in turn were replaced by trolleys, then buses. This scene, of two horses, driver and the stagecoach probably dates from the 1880's or 1890's.

Bobble Skirt Trolleys on Broadway

Hobble Skirt Trolleys on Broadway

This restored photograph, probably of an old postcard originally (some dot-screen apparent in the print), depicts a Broadway scene in New York City with Hobble Skirt Trolley cars. These partial low-floor trams began operating in about 1912. They were known as stepless or hobble skirt cars because women wearing hobble skirts could easily embark and disembark from the cars.
