Nov. 21, 1982: "People board buses and trolleys at Smithfield and Forbes"
Remember when ‘Bicentennial Tour Trolleys” used to run downtown? Remember when buses looked like the one in this picture?
This Pittsburgh Press photo was taken in 1982. The description below the photo read more as an advice column for people dreading winters in Pittsburgh, and closed with a hopeful end: “Step gingerly over the slush, button up, wear your scarf and gloves, take it slow, leave work early, hold your temper, don’t drive if you can avoid it, be patient…. and spring will be here before you know it…”
Ahhh, spring!
