Thanks.  It was raining (lightly), but the contrast got boosted in the posting.  The pavement was wet but not flooded,  Just occasional puddles.  See previous photos for an idea of the weather.

A very extensive collection from 1952 - remember some of the locations as a kid as we moved back to Baltimoe (Catonsville) in 1955.

found and repaired (attempted to repair?) a scan of a side view of Semi 5622 pictured earlier.

I also see that two-mn semis had all four doors double doors, while the exit-only door on one-man semis was single.

o views of PCC 7111 on Catonsville - Towson:

 

We lived in Catonsville.  One of my Aunt's lived in Towson, her daughter wanted to take me to a Orioles doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox.  Driving between Towson and Catonsville was a mounmental undertaking in the days before the Baltimore Beltway.  I boarded the #8 trolley at Ingleside Ave in 'downtown' Catonsville and proceeded to ride it to Overbrook Road a little South of 'downtown' Towson on a Sunday morning.  As I recall the trip consumed a little over two hours; had it been a work day the trip likely would have taken considerably more time account traffic in downtown Baltimore.

Their cheery livery reminds me of buses in Macau 40 years ago:

Falls Road, with the front of a Mount Wshington Line Brill Peter Witt. looking dwn Union Avenue and the track of the Union Avenue shuttle, 1947, taken at age 15:

 

From Richard Allman:

The Woodberry Station on the Central Light Rail Line is at the foot of the hill on Union Avenue just across the creek.
Took these photos in April 2008 when Jack May, Bob Dietrich, Fred Sauerberger and I were out photographing the light rail-transit police hassled us for what they described as “illegal activity”. Later MTA (Maryland Transportation Administration) got nailed in a law suit for enforcement of this illegal policy (only forbidden photography is military installations, nuclear facilities and private businesses where trade secrets can might be disclosed without permission), none of which applies to publicly owned and supported transit facilities. MTA was also reprimanded from the bench by the judge because its security employees were so ill-informed. DSC-31-9 is looking south-I was standing on Union Avenue. DSC-34-9 shows the Union Avenue grade crossing in the foreground. Shot facing north.

Can anyone identify this exact location, near or in the Downtown area on the 25 Mt. Washington Line?
