A picture of the Newark & Bloomfield Bus #495 taken sometime between 1919 and 1924. Bloomfield, New Jersey

Standing in front of the bus in each of the above images was my grandfather Robert Lee Fornoff. His brother Harry Fornoff owned a bus service in Bloomfield New Jersey and my grandfather drove for him. The bus in the second picture may have replaced the bus in the top photo as the second bus is larger and they were both numbered 495. Here is some information I found at Dave Mackey's website. He has a roster that includes two buses that my great uncle, Harry Fornoff sold to the New Jersey public transportation service. The fleet number and year aquired in the table header is the number used by NJ public transportation and the date they acquired the buses.
