Avenue J & Bedford, 1972.......

(The wonderfully old-fashioned, two-light traffic signal dates this old photo as much as the bus itself does)

Street scene from Lima, Peru back in the '60's. Check out the so called bat wings on the old look. Basically a sign board, but still the concept is the same as those in the U.S.

OUTSTANDING.....repeat, OUTSTANDING photo!!!!!!! Shocked Shocked

I had no idea that Old Looks once operated in Lima (my late best buddy's wife was born in Lima, and lived there until coming to the States with her mother in 1970, after graduating college); those square-window Old Looks sure bring back great memories of the buses I grew up with! Very Happy

The vintage American autos in the picture are also a great bonus; folks were also a LOT dressier, back in those days! Wink The largest ads on buses I can recall (both Old Looks and Fishbowls) were the elongated posters on the driver's side.

I also remember seeing rear ads split in half, so that the engine hatches could be raised.

Again, THANKS for posting this wonderful old photo!Very Happy

"NYO"

PS: Good to see you back on the board again.....it's been QUITE awhile! Smile

From what I understand, these two buses came from Los Angeles. The photo is the corner of Abancay Avenue with University Park to the left. Here is the same intersection today.

Like so many photos in and around New York that were taken several decades ago, that Lima intersection is like a totally different city!!!! Shocked Shocked

I was looking at the two Old Looks again in the vintage photo, and, by the paint, I'm thinking that the bus on the left was ex-LAMC/MTA, while the one on the right (with the signboard) might have been an ex-PE bus.

Thanks for posting both the "old" and "new" photos........ Wink

This page (one of several) documents the history of trams in Lima (trolley buses were also operated in Lima for some years); the last cars ran in 1965.

Many rare photos can be found here, as well as well-documented history.

Note that, at one time, several of the Lima suburban routes used ex-TARS (Third Avenue) rolling stock........

Lima's lone "heritage" tramway has an interesting history of its own......
