That was a really neat post about the Trolley pictures.  My best guess in reference to the curtains...  Those might be vintage Sears curtains.  I know I went on a search a few months ago online trying to find some curtains that used to be in my bedroom at my Grandma's house (that were vintage 70s) that came from Sears.  I wonder if there might be a connection between when the blue/green printed curtains appeared to when the show began to be sponsored by Sears.  If you could pinpoint when those blue/green curtains appeared to the correct year that might give you a reference point as to where to start looking for them.  That might be question to ask Eliot Daley.

Love it! Sorry for the multiple comment attempts, Tim; I didn't realize moderation was on. (Don't post sleepy!)

Now I'm going to be on the hunt for this set. I've always had a love of trolleys, both on MRN and the line at the end of my street. This pic would look good next to my closet, no?  ;)

That's pretty neat. I always liked the scroll of trolleys Rogers had in the main room and always wondered what types were shown.

I have to give thanks once again for this article. I just scored a set of these pictures on ebay. I had thought I would never find out what those pictures were, to say nothing about actually being able to have them!
