Scope & Content Trolley Tours in Jersey Over Mountains and Through Dells Via Public Service System. No date, circa 1904.

An advertising publication issued by Public Service Railway (or Public Service Corporation Street Railway) about 1904 (previous owner wrote his name and date on front cover: A.H. Wegner Aug 3 - 04.) It was intended to increase use of their streetcars for leisure and recreation.

Printed paper, 8-9/16" high x 30-1/2" wide folded to 3-7/8" wide. PDF on file.

One side is a text guide about tours for each trolley line and the other side is a route map for the northern part of New Jersey (although text does cover southern routes such as ones to Trenton.)

Public Service lines ran to and from Hoboken. The lines mentioning Hoboken were the White Line and the Bergen 'Pike [Turnpike] Line.
