Day 15: All Aboard!!! πŸ›€οΈ
According to an article by ALXnow, this ornament helps us remember a bygone era. "Car 303 of the Mount Vernon Alexandria & Washington Electric Railway was one of a fleet of art deco cars purchased in 1918 for the essential trolley line that connected Del Ray commuters to DC and tourists to Mount Vernon,” the city said in the ornament description. β€œCar 303 ran until the railway’s closure in 1932."
β€’
This ornament is made out of solid brass and has lovely green enamel to highlight the trolley.
