Color Prints of Early American Trolley Cars

DATE:  
MANUFACTURER: Autoprints

Description

Hundreds of times, Mister Rogers has opened his closet and changed in to or out of his sweater for a daily visit with his television neighbors. Over the course of these visits, framed images of four trolleys are seen next to the closet door.

 

In the early 1950's, a series of trolley prints were produced by the New York company Autoprints. The set of prints included eight images -- "Color Prints of Early American Trolley Cars." Autoprints also produced a similar set at this time featuring prints of train engines.

The four images framed next to Mister Rogers' closet are quickly recognizable from this Autoprints set.
