Next Stop, The Big Fresno Fair!

Built by the Saint Louis Car Company in 1922, the California Trolley and Railroad Corporation’s Birney Safety Car #143, was originally Fresno Traction #68.

All aboard! During 1903, trolleys and street cars began to rattle the city streets of Fresno from the San Joaquin River through the Fig Garden area to downtown Fresno and along Huntington Boulevard to Sunnyside! Streetcars were a reliable source of transportation around town for 36 years.

 

Now after more than 100 years, Fairgoers will have the opportunity to see the front end of one of these historic trolley cars and take great shots with a part of Fresno’s history in the Museum Park area at the Fresno Fairgrounds! Snap a picture of history and take a closer look at what commuting was like while visiting the 2020 Big Fresno Fair, October 8-12, 14-18!
