Bill Armstrong Collection

Friday, March 21, 2014

Third Avenue El

Looking north from the Ninth Street station as a train leaves on the local track.

Our March program will consist of highlights from the collection of the late William Armstrong. Most will remember Bill’s annual slide program, usually in March, which commemorated the month he joined ERA. For this special show, we will honor Bill’s memory by presenting images that he photographed from the late 1940s to the 1960s.

Topics will include:

  • The Third Avenue El
  • The Third Avenue Railway
  • Brooklyn trolleys and elevateds
  • Philadelphia trolleys and elevateds

Presenting will be Bill’s friend, Andrew Grahl. Please join us at the Roosevelt Hotel for an entertaining evening that is not to be missed.
