The original Seattle Transit livery is approximated in this postcard of two Twin Coaches westbound on Union Street at 4th Avenue, with rails still in the street - though with trolley wires miraculously invisible! The bus behind #802 would most likely be serving route 11 Madison.

The view was probably shot between the opening of the Montlake line on 2 May 1940, and 8 Sept 1940, after which date 802 would have been signed "East Queen Anne". Or rather, not 802: Route 4 became the territory of the 700-series Brills, delivered in August of 1940. From the collection of Don Galt.
