TMNY Throwback Thursdays returns this week with a glimpse of the museum grounds as it appeared in 1985.
In the two years since establishing the city of Kingston as its home, the museum was thriving along nicely. Our JG Brill "Doodlebug" car no. 120, pictured on the left, was by now taking passengers to Kingston Point. And much of the museum grounds was taking shape. As you can see, even the grounds itself looked drastically different than how it looks now in 2017. That trolley barn, pictured in the center, once stood roughly where the parking lot, picnic area, and Track A stand now. Even the surrounding area was a completely different place back then, for most of our neighbors were industrial businesses.
Today, TMNY continues to grow and become stronger. Thanks to our volunteers, we continue to strive to leave it all better than we found it.
