Pictured here is a southbound Public Service car on Broadway in 1956.
Ahh, 1956. The year Elvis Presley entered the U.S. music charts for the first time, with “Heartbreak Hotel,” Norma Jean Mortenson officially became Marilyn Monroe and the Yankees beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in the World Series (sigh.)
The local nine included such names as Ken Boyer, Alvin Dark and Stan Musial. Sadly, they finished in fourth place that year.
