BLACK HISTORY

May 24, 1910: Walter M. Hard, a young black barber, invents a device which will improve trolley car service enormously. Hard’s device makes it almost impossible for the electrical contact on top of a car to slip off the overhead wire. This will eliminate the many wasteful delays trolley car riders now suffer whenever the contact slips and the car stops dead.
