The Richmond Bus Line - 1923.

This is the cover of a small pamphlet I acquired last month. The publication appears to be announcing Richmond's first official bus line - to begin February 1, 1923. Streetcars were still the main public transportation. It was not until 1949 that buses completely took over - when the streetcars were taken off the streets of Richmond.

The route does not appear to conflict with the existing streetcar lines in the city.

This is the third page and back cover of the pamphlet. Who knew that the Sydnor and Hundley building at 108 East Grace Street was the heart of the city?
