1 pages; An illustrated trade card for Cherrelyn Horse Car, Denver Colorado. Very Good with a faint crease at upper right corner. Charming image of an open car on rails with the conductor/driver, four passengers ana a horse aboard. A popular tourist attraction that operated from 1883 to 1910 in Denver, Colorado. The Cherrelyn Line was built in 1883 by the Southside Investment Company and operated until 1910. Hitched to a single car at Hampden and Broadway, the horse pulled the car up a steep Broadway hill one-and-a-half miles to a small shopping area called Cherrelyn. At this high point the horse was unhitched and then road on the car back downhill to the route's starting point. Date is approximatebased on the introduction of the divided back of postcards and the closing of the Cherrelyn line. The Barkalow Bros had the Denver railroad concessions from 1881 to 1920.
