I've been looking at Wichita Kansas early cars and came across these two photos and descriptions, courtesy "Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum:"

Holy smokes!! You better have everyone ride towards the front of the bus or they'll have the bus see-sawing on the rear wheels. I think it's been said in another thread but it's amazing what they did with a 83 ft-lbs of torque.

Another Wichita Bus. The photo is a little large but it shows some nice detail.

The first photo of the Callahan Transfer Truck was taken looking in this direction on St. Francis Street South.



The building in the old photo is on the left. The open bays now have windows in them now and most of the buildings in the distance are gone. The Callahan Transfer Building survives! Wonder where the 1915 Model T chassis is today. The boys have long since passed.

Bus Stop is still there. Those awnings on that building have lasted longer than I would have thought. <grin>

BUS STOP

Classy bus on E. Douglas and only about six blocks east of Callahan Transfer & Storage.
