296 - First and Last

From 365 Project
These are some of the first buses acquired by the Virginia Electric & Power Company, one of the forerunners of today's Hampton Roads Transit (HRT), parked in front of the trolley barns and bus garage on 18th Street in Norfolk Virginia. The photo is dated June 12, 1927.
From 365 Project
82 years later three current HRT buses are parked in the same spot at the 18th Street bus garage. The garage will soon be torn down and replaced with a new garage. The two pictures show the first and last buses to operate at the 100 year old facility. Canon 40D, 1/100 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 100, 8mm fisheye lens.

Wow, 100 years?! Time sure does fly! This is a great photo idea. I really love the way you always give a little background info of the subjects.
