  1. Hello, This photo, taken at the 1933-34 Chicago World's Fair atop one of the Sky Ride Towers, shows a man walking on the gondola cables. Anyone familiar with this?
  2. The question has come up on my transit blog about the disposition of the buses used by Greyhound to transport visitors at A Century of Progress. Someone has a theory that the buses, or at least some of them, were sold to the Bowen Motor Coach Company in Texas for use at the Texas Centennial Exposition in 1936. Photos of the buses used there look quite similar to Chicago's with the addition of some sheet metal. The timing is right, at least. Texas would have been looking for such buses in 1935, right at the time Chicago had just finished using theirs. But of course, that does not prove it really happened that way. After all, the resemblance between the Texas and Chicago buses may simply mean they were both built by GM within a few years of each other. The buses used at the New York World's Fair were different, and I haven't researched the ones used at other fairs such as Cleveland's. https://thetrolleydodger.com/2016/03/27/trolley-dodger-mailbag-3-27-2016/ A few additional pictures are here: https://thetrolleydodger.com/2016/04/06/following-up/
