Thinker Thursday

By the year 1900, the main way of getting around was the trolley.  Electric trolleys were speedy, safe, and efficient.  But, they presented a problem.  While they were a great invention for men wanting to get around, women and girls were stuck.  Why?  Back then women wore very long skirts.  Getting onto a trolley was so difficult for them that high schools had classes that taught young ladies how to get on and off a trolley in a long skirt without getting stuck.

Join us on Thinker Thursdays to learn about people who have had great ideas, strange ideas, or really used their heads.
