Trolley Mural

Trolley Mural

Located at 204 Glasgow St., Clyde NY 14433

It is on the east side of the Clyde Public Library building which is located on the west side of the street.

 

The mural depicts the Clyde trolley station from the early 1900s. An old historic postcard from the Clyde Historical Society’s collection was used as the main reference for the background. The trolley station pictured in the mural is actually the building on the corner, right next to our high school across the street from the mural (corner of Wayne and 414). The trolley ran down Wayne Ave and ran from Syracuse to Rochester. This mural was painted by art students from Clyde-Savannah high school with the guidance of James Zeger, student art teacher, and Sue Lane, high school art teacher. The figures were researched by the students for accurate clothing styles. The people’s faces in the mural were modeled after the art students.
