Imagine Sitting Instead of Standing

About the Project

Okay!!  The seat cushions and seat backs are upholstered.  The floor is freshly painted.  The cherry woodwork is varnished.  The brass window latches glisten. The exterior even has its red striping.  Now is the time to install the seats in Capital Traction Company 27 to celebrate its 100th birthday.  Your contribution puts the finishing touch inside the street car body and invites folks to have a seat!! 


Capital Traction Company 27 entered service at the end of World War I and served the Nation's Capital through the end of World War II.  Help the Museum get it ready for its 100th anniversary.
