This post-street-car view shows York’s Continental Square and its stand of buses. Buses became king when the last street car made its run in 1939. Public transit would become more important as wartime rationing kicked in. And there’s Bear’s, standing on the square’s angle that has been in the news recently. An interesting website, operated by David Sullivan, profiles York’s department stores.
