We had heavy rain here in the Susquehanna Valley overnight and it brought to mind “what did people do when riding in a Fifth Avenue Coach Company open-top double decker bus”–so I went searching through our photographs and located this one–of a 1919 bus with the driver putting up what appears to be a portable canvas top! Not sure how well that would keep people out of the rain! I know that this was one problem the Fifth Avenue Coach Company had with its open-top double-deckers–fares went way down during inclement weather and they were not able to use them during the winter.
