A postcard of Glendale Park, once located near the present intersection of Caldwell and Lealand Lanes in Nashville, Tennessee. This trolley park was owned by the Nashville Railway and Light Company who also owned the streetcar line on which it sat. For a nickel per person you could ride the trolley from anywhere in Nashville to the park. The popular recreational area boasted several attractions including a zoo, casino, roller rink, roller coaster, merry-go-round, shooting galleries, bandstands, tennis court, and croquet grounds. In 1932, when patronage on the trolleys had decreased due to the Depression and the popularity of the automobile, Glendale Park closed down. Homes now occupy much of the former park site. Forms part of the Norton Postcard Collection. 1 postcard : col. ; 3.5 x 5.5 in.
