Description

This bus was as Mr. Lemen described it an "old Reo" owned by Southland Transportation Company headquartered at the Central Hotel. In this picture, the bus is parked in front of the Central Hotel. We do not find the business in the 1925 directory so it may have been in business only a short time when the picture was taken. The route of the bus was Madison to Louisville and Madison to Cincinnati.
