Take a Trolley Ride to 1905

The Gloucestercast (#455 ) recently featured Matthew Murray and his @cape_ann_history Instagram account. This reminded me I hadn’t checked eBay recently for random Gloucester ephemera that I might have to add to my collection….and sure enough, I found and purchased this post card discussing visitors taking a trolley ride around Cape Ann in 1905. I loved the details provided by the author which matched up nicely with the information Matthew shared about the days of trolleys on Cape Ann. These visitors were staying at the Grand View Hotel in Annisquam and there’s a great blog post about Cape Ann’s grand hotels in 1905 found here.

Additional information about trolleys in Gloucester can be found here at the Gloucester Daily Times written by none other than Ray Lamont.

It doesn’t take long for me to get totally wrapped up in the history with the assistance of our own Gloucester Daily Times and eBay!
