Caption: Early trolleybus system. 19th-century artwork of an early trolleybus system in rural Nevada, USA. Electric power is drawn from overhead cables, but the vehicle itself runs on the open road instead of on rails. The conversion from horse-drawn to electric vehicles took place in the 1880s and 1890s. Artwork from the 21st volume (first period of 1898) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
