Details

This booklet served as the ceremonial program for the Last Trolley trip between Frederick and Hagerstown.  Inside, attendees found a letter from president R. Paul Smith discussing the future of the company as well as a history of trolley service and the schedule of events for the day.

This copy was presented to Lewis Fagan, then chief clerk for the company.  On the rear cover is a hand written note signed by R. Paul Smith and signed the date of the last trolley.
