I have a soft spot in my heart for trolleys. Most often they were red, with bells that clanged to warn people of their arrival. What’s not to like. Unfortunately, by the time I was deposited on this Earth, they were disappearing from the landscape and I never got to see any of them in their native environment. Maybe I should have gotten to San Francisco.
There used to be a lot of trolleys in Quebec City but the only evidence of them these days are long, low viaduct streets that allowed them climb the steep hill upon which sits “vieux Quebec”, the tourist money-maker and my favorite place.
So, this episode of Sketch the Past is a Quebec City trolley as it ran down rue St. Joseph back in 1947. Hope you like it.
