TROLLEY CARDS

Trolley cards measure 21" x 27" and resemble jumbo window cards, except they don't have a blank space at the top like a jumbo window card does.

Trolley cards were printed for local theaters and sometimes have the theater name printed on them.

Most of the ones that have survived are from the 1920s and 1930s and were originally used in San Francisco, California. It is said they were displayed on famous trolley cars there, which is why they are called trolley cards.

Trolley cards are normally silkscreen art, and it is almost always artwork and usually different than other poster artwork.

AS A COLLECTIBLE

Trolley cards are very hard to find and extremely collectible.
