A handle taken from a Brill trolley seat, presumed to be from the last H&F trolley #172 due to the collection it was acquired with.
These handles were mounted to the inside top corner of the seats and used by the motorman of the trolley to pull the seats and change which direction they were facing while reversing direction at the end of each trip.
