1947: "L-LIBERTY STREET" BUS AT LIBERTY AND CHAMBERS STREET
Once again, sincere thanks to the Duke University Library Archives for this beautiful photo of the intersection of Chambers and Liberty Street as it looked when I was a boy of 14 back in 1947. It takes a bit of detective work as well as Photoshop knowledge to locate some of these photos due to the fact that the landscape has changed over these 63 years. I enhanced the destination window on the bus, and see that the bus has its destination as "PERRY ST. TERMINAL;" which is what our L9 Liberty Street" bus displayed as it left the dead end at Cedar Lane and Olden Avenues back in my neighborhood in Hamilton township. Hence, the bus is heading to the terminal on Liberty Street and getting ready to cross Chambers Street.
