Picture 26.5.

A flea market customer stops to read the plaque on the dash of car 453 in February 1974, not very long after the car was installed at this spot.  The lines in the pavement in front of the car record how it was dragged here without the benefit of any kind of tracks under its wheels.  The visible route sign is the replacement created by author Hampton to protect the original, which is barely seen at the edges of the replacement sign.  A flea market seller is plying his trade at the side of the old streetcar. — Collection of Michael “Streetcar Mike” Strauch
