Capturing the past in all its worn and battered glory in color.
Another recolored trolley- a Brill center center door car on the Brooklyn side of the old Vernon Avenue bridge. These old trolleys were not well maintained during the second world war and were slated to be replaced by buses soon afterwards. So the old Board of Transportation didn't see much sense in repairing these battered old war horses and this old girl shows the battle scars of decades of loyal service. She still wears her old BMT/B&QT red livery, not the bottle green and silver of the NYC Board of Transportation. Even the buildings in the background show the wear during the war years when workmen and building materials were in short supply.
The original black and white photo is from www.nycsubway.org and the colorize is my own work.
