In 1945 America was 90 percent white and blacks were still required to sit in the back of the bus.
This nostalgia film takes 10 minutes to explain to young people how the American intercity bus system worked. It shows a father and son going for a bus trip from New York City to Pittsburg. Part of the trip takes place along the Pennsylvania turnpike.
Watch how well dressed and polite everyone is. We were a unified tribe in 1945. There’s some beautiful countryside on display too.
