in their 1946 built PCC #775, Once retired, the car, with its rollsign, was shipped to Toronto, Ontario

by a Toronto style two-piece front signbox.

This partial front route linen is from Kansas
City Public Service Company. It appears to be
originally designed for a GMC "Old Look" bus.
There is no print date on the sign. It has 28
exposures. The image of this sign was created
from sequential photographs of the actual sign.
The exposures with
numbers that have a red
slash through it indicate
a "short turn" for that
route, meaning it's a
destination point short
of the full route's length.
