Bill Adams' Dementia Page

Rochester, NY
With the recent fire at the National Capital Trolley Museum and my ongoing volunteer work beside members of the Rockhill Trolley Museum, I was thinking about this photograph. This is my great grandfather, who was a conductor for the Rochester Railway and Light Company, then a motorman on the successor company New York State Railways, and in 1938 began driving buses for the Rochester Transit Corp. when they replaced the trolleys.
The location looks like a turnaround (where there would be an opportunity to set up such a photo), and the tracks are visible crossing the street just ahead of the cars. This photograph was given to him by an unknown railfan. The exact date is unknown, a safe guess is that it's between WWI and 1938.
