  1. The picture about the School Bus reminds me of the School Buses when I was in school in Burlington from 1952-1962. Mr. Carpenter had the contract and there was always a big CARPENTER painted on the side of the bus. I always assumed that he had paid to have it painted there. When I moved to Indiana in 1970 I discovered the Carpenter was one of the largest manufactures of school buses and they put their name on all their buses. Traveling along Interstate 70 near Richmond IN you could always see a yard full of buses with CARPENTER painted on the side of the buses.

  2. Don’t forget Fred Richardson I believe was the driver for the route of Francis Wyman Rd.

  3. I sold Bob Bertini new trucks early seventies and I recall him saying he uses the same size tires as on his buses . He was a really a nice guy
