I have stumbled upon what i believe to be the lone surviving trolley wire support pole in town near the intersection of main and ashland streets in doylestown, pa.

It has remnants of green enamel paint and i took a photo so someone can confirm if it was a trolley wire support pole or not.

The tree in the photo is about 30 years old. I'm guessing it survived due to it being so far off the sidewalk and behind a tree that was likely there previously.

looks very much like a trolley pole to me, and i see them every day. you should ask the property owner if you could get a good look at the plaque on it.

I started a thread concerning the Willow Grove-Doysletown trolley under Septa. There are tracks near the old bridge on Edison Rd near Easton Rd.
