More About This Title Western Connecticut Trolleys


Throughout history, Americans have embraced technology with a special enthusiasm, and the innovation of the trolley car is no exception. This industry fueled the growth of many towns and cities in Connecticut, and Western Connecticut was able to keep pace with other parts of the state because of it. Although short lived, the trolley changed the landscape of the state and spurred progress in ways never imagined just a few years before. Marking an important milestone in the documentation of Connecticut's street railway heritage, Western Connecticut Trolleys is the sixth Arcadia Publishing book chronicling the history of all the streetcar lines and companies in the state.


This book has been compiled from pictures courtesy of the Fred Bennet collection, Connecticut Motor Coach Museum, and Branford Electric Railway Association. Nancy Johanson and Bert Johanson worked with renowned trolley historian Fred Bennet to craft this important volume.
