Overview

Waterbury Trolleys traces the growth and expansion of the streetcar system throughout the Naugatuck Valley. This system became part of the Connecticut Company’s extensive streetcar network, spanning 1,138 miles statewide at its peak in 1918. As automobiles became a primary mode of transportation, the streetcar lines in Waterbury transitioned to bus routes. By 1937, streetcars were officially replaced by buses. This wonderful collection of vintage photographs documents the network of streetcars that once thrived in Waterbury.

Meet the Author

Thanks to the efforts of various collectors, including Horace Bromley, Fred S. Bennett, and the Connecticut Motor Coach Museum, photographs of this great system still exist today. Four members of the museum—Nancy Johanson, Bert Johanson, Alan Walker, and John Sullivan—compiled this book from the archives of the museum. In consultation with Bennett, the authors strive to perpetuate Bromley and Bennett’s ideals of preserving and sharing history.
