Harry Donahue, a member of NJERHS, is looking for color photos of the interior of any of the Newark PCCs from before about 1980 when they were rehabbed into the more modern "transit white" livery used by Transport of NJ and then NJ Transit. Harry is working on a restoration of Newark PCC #26 at the Baltimore Streetcar Museum. The car will be retrofitted into the traditional Public Service colors. He says that the interior was two-tone green with a cream ceiling, but darker green than the Philly cars. Anyone having digital photos can e-mail them to him at email@example.com. Any print copies can be sent to him at: Harry Donahue, 103 Mulberry Court, Morgantown, PA 19543. Harry will return any photos sent to him.
