Kansas City and Olathe Electric Trolley
Photograph of two men posing outside a Kansas City and Olathe Electric Railway car in the 1910s. The single trolley car bears a "SHAWNEE" sign on the front, and "Shawnee" and "Kansas City & Olathe E. R." are painted on its side. Snow covers the ground, and houses are visible behind the car. One of the two uniformed men is identified as Tom Davis. The interurban rail line ran for 7 miles between Olathe and Kansas City from 1903 to 1934, and was also known as the Hocker's Grove or Hocker Line.
