Rapid Transit Mouse Trap
The Rapid Transit was patented August 28th, 1878 and manufactured by Smith & Egge Mfg Co,
Bridgeport, Ct. Smith & Egge were early manufacturers of the Delusion mouse traps but dropped
the Delusion to manufacture the Rapid Transit instead. Unfortunately for Smith & Egge, the production
of the Delusion traps were taken up by another manufacturer and the design remained popular up through
the 1920's. The Rapid Transit did not see the same success.
Please contact me if you have one of these traps to sell.
