Many of them in fact had eiruvin. As a side note to a class on Children on Shabbat, Rabbi Tzvi Sobolofsky mentioned that Brisk had one in the days of Rabbi Chaim Soloveitchik. His attitude seemed to be that this was hardly exceptional.
While they hardly qualify as shtetlach, Rabbi Herschel Shachter mentioned that both Warsaw and Paris had eiruvin in the 19th century.
