Back when trolleys were a regular sight on Brooklyn streets, those same streets were blasted by the Blizzard of ‘47, which occurred on Christmas Day and dumped 25.8 inches of snow on the city, blanketing it and rendering its thoroughfares virtually impassable. In this photo from the files of this newspaper, one of those same trolleys is captured, immobile and frosted with snow, stuck apparently somewhere in Sunset Park.
