Trolley Car to Natatorium Park

Another magnificent image from my collector friend, Darin Krogh. Natatorium Park was Spokane's preemier trolley park and operated from 1889 to 1967. Trollery parks were a commmon American attraction in late-19th and early-20th century America. Trolley car companies would create amuseument parks on cheap land at the outskirts of town. Admission was often free--but you had to ride the trolley to get there. Clever those trolley owners.

More to come.

Your blog is full of rich history. I remember going to Nat Park as a child, probably around 1954 - 1956, and riding the Carousel.
