Picture 21A-23.

In 1970, this type of ticket was issued to postal carriers, who rode the cars and buses free.  Note that the cash fare at this time was still only ten cents!  In earlier times, not even tickets were required of a postal carrier in uniform carrying his leather satchel.  Incidentally, by long standing custom in this predominantly Catholic city, Catholic nuns in their distinctive habits boarded at the front of the streetcar and rode free, no tickets or fares being required.
