1959 New York City Bus Sign w/ Destinations: Beacon Theatre, 28x22 inches

$195.00

You are viewing a unique, antique Manhattan (New York County) bus roll sign section from a 1959 C-50 Mack Bus.

This sign is made of glossy vellum. It is in excellent condition, with a minimal amount of grime.

Please review all of the close-up photos carefully before buying.

Destinations are: 73rd ST. & B'WAY (Broadway, Beacon Theatre located on next block), 8TH AVENUE, WEST 42ND ST. PIER.

There is a section of blank vellum that I have not photographed. Including this blank section, the sign is more like 36 inches long.

The back of the sign has copper-reinforced edges, which I've taped with Gaffer tape to secure the sharp edges.

The sign has a black background with cream-colored lettering.

Manhattan Island featured electric streetcars into the late 1940s. The powers of transit in New York definitely favored roads. New York was one of the earliest major cities to quit electric street railways (Los Angeles and Washington DC, for example, lasted into the 1960s).
