The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch has partnered with the Baldwin Historical Society to bring you a weekly trivia question that delves into our area's colorful past.
and Patty Woehler, co-presidents of the society, generously write the questions and provide the pictures.
Here is this week's question:
In 1912, a jitney service was available in the then-Baldwin Township area.
John Lachman started a bus line from the Globe Hotel to the Bruceton Hotel, enabling workers to reach mines. At that period of time, the local streetcar line ended at the Globe Hotel.
The jitney service was called the Auto Transfer Bus, and soon, the company had to put another bus to work.
This picture (on the right) of a driver and passengers was taken around 1920.
On which road (picture on the left) did this jitney travel?
