Georgia Ave. Video circa 1950
Trolley ran up Georgia Ave, Georgia Ave was the "turn around" point for
Liberty Ave. Trolley line, and it was also the route to the "Trolley
which later became the TA's Garage for the buses.In the 40's they pulled up the tracks and "Trolley Buses" ran the route
a couple of years, (they had to connect to the overhead electric lines
power, which was a problem when the connector jumped the line.) By the
40's and 50's the electric lines were taken down and regular bus
took over." -Mary Cornell
