Trolley Tracks and Yellow Bricks Survived Well Past the End of an Era

This is a view of the lower park entrance to Rock Springs Park in 1970. The last trolley ran in 1934, but as you can see from this photograph the yellow brick entrance with embedded tracks was still around 36 years later. I was told that a trolley fan used a switch key at the time this picture was taken to manually switch the track and it still operated. The bridge in the background crosses over Marks Run. Much earlier postcard views of this area show the Old Mill Ride beyond the entrance gate. (Courtesy of Richard Bowker)
