Vintage Bust Station sign

This bus stop sign, posted by the Public Service Dept. of New Jersey during the 1940s, includes a subtle indicator of the economic condition of the day. The two poles on the roof of the bus image indicate the poles receiving electricity used to power the buses. This was a common practice during WWII when gasoline rationing was prevalent.
