Last week's question was: "What Is Going on in This Image?" and there were only two guesses. Dianne Rechel thought that the image was of people posing before going for a ride on the Farmington Ave. trolley. Tracey Wilson said, "I think this is the last trolley ride in West Hartford in the 1930s. I think the trolley is on Park Road or maybe on New Park Avenue. When they dug up Park Road about 10 years ago, they dug up trolley track which had been paved over."

The answer provided by the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society is: This photograph was taken on the last day that the Park Road trolley was in operation, circa 1940.
