A Moment in Monrovia History: A Mule Riding a Trolley

This mule-drawn trolley served Monrovians in the early days. It traversed Myrtle Avenue from the Santa Fe Depot to Lemon Avenue and thence east. The gradient of Myrtle was sufficient to allow the car to 'coast' on the southbound run, so the mule got a free ride downhill. L to R: J. S. Williamson, Sam Wilson, B.F. Crews. From the Myron Hotchkiss collection. See full details here.
