Fellows:

Can anyone ID these buses that are seen in the lower right of this 1965 photo?

QP, circa-1956.

Note two Old Looks on the right; the bus nearest to the camera is from Mr. Linsky's own GREEN LINE......

W.B.:

Thanks: I was also leaning towards TRIBORO, but could not be 100% sure.

The bus scene in "Noo Yawk" was quite interesting, back in '65, with not only the tremendous show that the "Tee-Yay" put on, but also, the grand performances by the "indies", which, sadly, no longer exist......
