    What a great photo of the #9 Alma!!! You won’t know how many memories that stirred — 30 years ago I lived near Broadway because it was the only all night bus route in town — I can’t count the times I’ve stood there waiting for the driver to pull out of that cozy spot under the trees.

    peter: Wow — I’ll have to pass this note on to the photographer. Glad the photo brought back some good memories!
