Somewhere Along McDonald Avenue
The photo below, also comes from the New York Transit Museum Archives and it is from the Lonto-Watson collection. It was taken on April 9, 1955 somewhere along McDonald Avenue. This is the period after the Culver Line was "captured" by the IND Subway in October 1954 and PCC streetcars were found on the last three streetcar lines in Brooklyn (Church Avenue, Church-McDonald and Coney Island Avenue) Streetcar service ended under the Culver Line on October 31, 1956. This great shot shows a train of R1-9 cars on the Independent "D" Line (Sixth Avenue Line) between 205th Street in the Bronx and Coney Island. Great side view shot of the PCC car and the"D" train. The PCC car shares its' tracks with the South Brooklyn Railroad.
