This is a vid of trolleys running all over Brookyn in the 1930s. You’ll see some familiar buildings and it even runs down Fifth Avenue. Cool stuff.

    Absolutely fabulous film of trolley cars in Brooklyn, circa 1938. Brings back wonderful memories. I used to ride them in the 1950’s. Somebody…..anybody……bring em’ back!

    Actually this film is from about 1948. Towards the end you can see a 1947 or 48 Studebaker.
