On its website today, the Staten Island Advance links to 33 photos of vintage scenes of transit buses on the island. There are four or five photos of Macks, and one of a GMC in 1953.

Thanks, also, for telling me that the IND had black conductors during the 1930's; as much as I've researched the IND over the years, and as many old IND photos I have seen over the years, I've not y ...
