National Capital Trolley Museum, 90s Advertisements, & Trivia Tuesday

Over the weekend, we took a trip to the National Capital Trolley Museum in Colesville, Maryland. It's a small venue with a room of about a dozen trolleys/streetcars, and then you can take a ride on one of the streetcars. The one trolley you could ride when we visited was built in the 1950s and was still operational in Toronto until the mid-90s. Maybe more interesting to me was the ads still on display in the trolley. While this isn't necessarily a Trivia Tuesday post, I'm giving you a challenge today. Can you name the albums from the following ad:

U2, Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, R.E.M., and Eric Clapton immediately jumped out to me. It looks like there are also Hootie and the Blowfish, Melissa Etheridge, and Seal albums. Since this is a Canadian station, that's probably Barenaked Ladies on the top left. Please help fill in the ones I'm missing in the comments section below.

Here are a couple more pictures from the museum. (Not pictured is the one woman who yelled at us for having a loud 4 year old. You're in a trolley museum. There are going to be kids there!)

Now, I need to make sure I get to Toronto by 4:00 this afternoon to catch Ricki Lake!

That place is right near my parents' house!

Did you or your parents ever visit the Trolley Museum? (By the way, the playground at the nearby Wheaton Regional Park was very cool.)

Yep I remember going there at least once or twice. I'm sure the Wheaton Regional playground is updated since I played there as a youngin', but it was impressive even then! Nearby Wheaton Mall is where we saw The Bodyguard back in 1992 :).

Actually, I think it was School Ties we saw there, not The Bodyguard?
