    In 1945, as a boy age 7 I remember boarding the #3 trolley at Jackson & Towns after climbing the National Cemetery fence twice and gave the driver/ conductor seven cents and ride all the way to Main street and back all by myself. I never had any problems. and I learned a lot from the other passengers. Those were the days.
