Panama City Trolley (street car) History

Trolley circa 1913
I’ve been wondering about the street cars (trolleys) for years since their tracks are still visible in the street of Casco Viejo and wondered when they stopped operating.  I found the following website on this subject, very interesting:   The last trolley stopped operating on Saturday night May 31, 1941 & had 20 trams & 11.2 miles of track at that time.  This article also notes that auto traffic was on the left side of the street British style until 1943.
