Series V: Instructional Images, 1923

Scope and Contents note

Series V is divided into two subseries. Within each subseries, items are arranged alphabetically by caption. The first subseries contains images of employees adjusting, installing, operating, or assembling various vehicles and automotive parts. The second is a series of staged, didactic photographs depicting correct and incorrect practices for drivers and conductors. Examples of improper behaviors include smoking, reading the newspaper, miscalculating distances, stopping short, and leaving the bus unprotected. Images of model conduct show the proper way to make turns, usher passengers to the upper deck, and warn passengers before going under elevated structures.
