|Retired Queen City Metro Flxible 870 #169, the bus these two
signs came from (still seen installed), as it was discovered in
a yard just outside Dayton, Ohio on May 23, 2011.
This front linen rollsign was
recovered from Cincinnati Transit Co.
1949 built Marmon-Herrington TC48
trolley bus #1427.
The entire sign appears to have had
21 exposures, however the first three
were badly weathered and damaged
beyond recovery (see the photo
below). To preserve the integrity of
the remaining exposures, the three
destroyed exposures were cropped
out, and the beginning blank linen
was reattached to the "X WINTHROW
HIGH SCHOOL" exposure.
The exposures that were cropped
- "28 4TH & CENTRAL"
- "28 EASTERN AVE. CARRELL ST."

rollsign came from, is seen at a
