Now that's as good as it gets!

The "vintage" trolley is a classic streamlined PCC design that served for decades, starting service in the late 1930's or early 1940's for the Philadelphia Transportation Co. (PTC). PTC merged into the current quasi government controlled "SEPTA" System in 1968 after PTC went bankrupt. The great-looking "Cream & Green" paint scheme predates the SEPTA era by a few years, making the Mustangs almost brand new.

The electric trolleys seemed way ahead of their time considering today's eco conscious society. Philadelphia had a vast transit network of trolley lines, almost all of which are long gone, replaced mostly by diesel powered buses, originally built by GM COACH. I'm going to research this photo further to determine the exact location of this nostalgic gem.
