    I guess Franklin Avenue downtown in the late 50s. If I am correct, that is a 32 Wellston streetcar

    Or the streetcar might have been the 15 Hodiamont; they shared the same track downtown on Franklin Ave. during that period.

    I’m guessing one of the buses shown on the picture may have been the 104 Natural Bridge, which ran downtown on Franklin Av. and Delmar during that period
