Here's a nice shot of the conveyance that spelled the demise of the Newark streetcar -- the trackless trolley
perfected by Public Service engineers and introduced in the mid '30s. Using overhead wires, a TT could follow established streetcar routes or, with its poles secured, could continue under gasoline or diesel power. In this photo both modes are evident. By the '50s, the TTs -- and all electric transportation in Newark except the 7 City Subway -- were a thing of the past. This view shows the intersection of Broad and Market streets, looking east down Market. You can just see the Newark Paramount in the upper right corner.
