ALBION – This snapshot was taken in the late 1920s in front of the Rialto Theater on Main Street in Albion.

The bus signage indicates: “Ride The Blue Bus – Rochester Batavia Buffalo.” The word “Special” is also displayed. This may have been a special excursion for Odd Fellows or Rebeccas as the 100F Temple was located next to the theater.

A storefront at the time in the Odd Fellows building has “Billiards” painted on a window.

Note a man placing luggage on top of the bus. Hope it didn’t rain!
