A Panorama of Progress leading to today's ALL-MODERN Transit Service [images of Streetcars and Buses], RNL, Nov. 25, 1949

The images below were scanned from a rather ragged and yellow'd copy of the Richmond News Leader dated November 25, 1949, page 25. The image quality isn't great but the images themselves are pretty neat. This full page advertisement was sponsored by the Virginia Transit Company which ran Richmond's bus service at this time. In 1949, the last of Richmond electric trolleys ran their last routes - all replaced by buses.  Click HERE for the Greater Richmond Transit Company's timeline history of trolley and bus service in Richmond. - click on each image for a larger view.
