Harmony Short Lines Freight Truck

Harmony Short Lines ran trucks for freight service in its early days. In some instances, the trucks took the place of buses to maintain and keep the franchise of a low patronage route. The truck pictured was just one of many that Harmony had until the truck freight business was eliminated sometime around the time of the Great Depression.

Harmony Short Lines Terminal

A shot of the front of the Harmony Short Lines terminal building. The bus in front is not loading passengers as it is an Allegheny Valley bus who's stop was at 10th by Liberty, not 10th and Penn. Butler County bound buses boarded in front of the terminal.
