These photos are available thanks to the generosity of Kimberly Scalzo. Her husband, the last Steve Scalzo, was a prolific transit photographer. He was also extremely careful to mark the vast majority of his slides with dates and locations. Thanks to these two individuals, we are able to take a walk down memory lane and peer into the past.

Due to concerns expressed by some about rampant piracy of photos on the internet, restrictions have been placed on posting photos from the Museum's collection here. The requirements set forth state that they must be low res and watermarked. We apologize to the vast majority of our patrons who only use this site as intended, for personal enjoyment and information gathering.
