Cornwall Street Railway Flashback

Some of us recall the days of trolley buses, and before that, street cars travelling the streets of Cornwall.

Enjoy this Boxing Day flashback to an earlier point in the life of our community.

The street car “barns” were located on the site of the current Cornwall Square shopping center.

A street car sweeper.

A trolley bus passing City Hall.

Paper Mill hill.

And a parade along Second Street; the orphanage is barely visible in the distance.

These photos and many others are from the CSLR collection at your Museum and Archives.
