Ford 72-T (HSR #93-99, 121-128)

Fifteen Ford 72-Ts were used by the HSR in the 1940s and 1950s. The buses arrived in Hamilton in 2 batches. HSR #93-99 & # 121-123 were built in 1944, with HSR #124-128 arriving in the following year. All 72-Ts were retired before the sale of the HSR to the City of Hamilton in 1959.

Some of the dates for these photos are unknown, and the locations are often just a guess. If you know either date or location, email me!
