The Lakewood bound City Coach Lines bus picks up its fur shawl wrapped, high heeled passenger in this staged 60’s vintage photograph by Loyd Sandgren.  There are a number of photographs in the Sandgren collection shot for the city and Greyhound bus lines from that era in Jacksonville.  Different time different fashion.
