Vintage Bus - C1910 - New York

Vintage Bus, circa 1910-1915
New York - Vintage Bus - C 1910-1915
Here is a old vintage bus at the beginning of the 20th Century. This bus's route took passengers from 5th Ave to Central Park in New York, USA. The date was around 1910 to 1915. Things of note are the very high driving position, that air horn, solid rubber tyres and the cost, only ten cents. Not sure if is driven by steam or petrol, does anyone know ?

The article decribes the pros and cons of the journey and how much it cost. Overall it appears to cost about $20 instead of the hundreds of dollars that other means of transport charge and it can be just as convenient if you plan your journey.

Big blue double decker bus

Very big double decker bus
A big blue very long six wheeled double decker bus. The bus driver must have a special skill driving this one. Driving round corners can only be a little tricky.
