Philadelphia public transit is now SEPTA (Southeastern Pennaslyvania Transportation Authority). Prior to SEPTA it was PTC (Philadelphia Transportation Company), 1st. photo shows an old trolley, a cap that the PTC employees would wear, tokens used, and a 1948 route map. Prior to PTC it was PRT (Philadelphia Rapid Transit), one of the tokens is mark as a PRT token. The last picture I threw in was an alternate way to get around our City, and that would be our taxis. Picture is a hat that was worn back in the day by a Yellow cab employee.

If from Philly or if you remember the pimple ball check out my site. thank you
