Fifth Avenue Coach number 3103, a GM TDH-5301 and very new, the license plate says 1960, on route 5, Fifth Avenue-Riverside Drive to Wash. Square.

Barely visible through the windshield is the Grant fare box.

Number 2377 is a GM TDH-4509 of 1950.

BTW, watch this video featuring a Fifth Avenue Coach fishbowl, number 3111.

The first set of FACL Fishbowls for the FACO Division were the first whereby roll signs were made with mylar and by Transign. Their layout was heavily influenced by the roll signs of the Old Looks. By the time of 3111, the layout was considerably different, as seen on the contrasting ways the Washington Square end destination was shown 'twixt 3103 and 3111.
