Summary
Collection contains Maine trolley footage of the Androscoggin and Kennebec Railway, Portland Railroad Company, and Biddeford & Saco Railroad. This short amateur film was released by the Portland Division of the Electric Railroaders’ Association, and the creator shot intertitles and animated map sequences to show the routes of each trolley, scenery from along the track, and interior shots of passengers.
Biographical/Historical Notes
Gerald O. Boothby, friend of O.R. Cummings, photographed the trolley railroad footage. The footage was taken for the now defunct Portland Division of the Electric Railroad Association, of which Boothby was a member.
