Historic photo! A Chicago Transit Authority mid 1950's era Flxible Twin Coach Company propane powered transit bus. Chicago Illinois USA. July 1969.

I found this very historic Chicago Transit Authority bus photo from 1969, at My link page Northern California Bus Fans to the right of Your computer screen.

I was born in Chicago during the year of 1962, and I have happy childhood memories of the old late 1940's and 1950's era Twin Coach Company, and later Flixble Twin Coach Company propane powered transit buses once used by the CTA.

These big transit buses, were used all over the CTA system during the 1960's. They were retired from service during 1972 and 1973.
Believe it or not.....I miss them.
