Very scarce ephemeral [tourist pocket size] early 20th century trolley-related item.

Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition, it is inherently fragile.
Binding age worn, top corner of cover chipped, light soiling, surface abrasion, yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is clean, internally booklet remains well preserved, minor staining or soiling, any flaws of a minor type unworthy of specific mention.
Still attractive on the shelf. Item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
