Donated: a 1943 Buzzer!

A 1943 Buzzer, kindly donated by Mike Conroy.

Another quick post to point out another Buzzer that arrived in the mail a while back! This one is from 1943 and was sent in by Mike Conroy. The issue has a goofy article about a recent snowfall, which they’ve dubbed “stuff” instead of snow, and there’s assorted other great stories about riding transit in the Lower Mainland—including that big cartoon urging riders to move to the back! Download the full PDF here.

I asked Mike where he found this Buzzer and here’s his story: “I found them tucked into an old library book in UBC storage. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the title but it was a textbook from the early 1930s.”

Thanks so much Mike! Again, if anyone else happens to find an old Buzzer in their holdings and you don’t know what do with it, please do send it in to TransLink: just write to the attention of the Buzzer editor, 1600 – 4720 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5H 4N2. We love collecting this sort of thing in our archives!
