Ticket To Ride

On old Bus Pass

A large lot of tickets. Of interest, note the last ticket of the Walkerville-Detroit Ferry is signed by Harrington Walker. Harrington was a Grandson of Hiram, and his house still stand on St. Mary’s Gate, opposite the Chruch in old Walkerville. Here’s a link to some information about Harrington’s house, from the Walkerville Times.

One of the tickets in the lot above from Detroit, has always struck me as odd. The “Workingmen’s Ticket”, with the disclaimer on the back that it is sold under protest. 🙂 There must be an interesting story behind that one.
