This is a U Line car heading South on Vermont Ave. to 116th St. The
photographer was looking on Vermont from Florence Ave.
The dash sign on the U car says “Florence and Vermont” which is where the U car terminates, the U car turns back here at Florence to return north on Vermont. You can see tracks coming in from the right of the photo, this is the F line converging onto Vermont. The F car continues down Vermont to 116th St.
Can you tell me if the U Line was ever routed to the Dunbar Hotel on 42nd and Central Avenue?
The U line did pass 42nd St on Central Ave until abandonment in Aug. 1947. – Ralph Cantos
