Event Description
Trolleyology: Trolley Watches

Join PTM staff, volunteers, members, and friends of the Museum for our Zoom series, Trolleyology! These programs feature Pennsylvania transit history topics and tales of our collection that you can experience from home. Registration is required but free of charge. Donations are welcome and encouraged. Limited space is available!

Philip Sauerlender will talk about specialized pocket watches made for interurban electric railway employees. These watches were made specifically to meet the requirements of the interurban railway industry which flourished briefly during the first third of the twentieth century. This program will explain the need for these watches, describe their characteristics, show their advertising, and illustrate many examples.

A Question & Answer session and discussion will follow the program.

For the best experience, we recommend downloading Zoom in advance.
