The "Samuel Adams" is led by car 6026 at Wellington July 7, 1975. Note the unusual destination sign variant: this Ravenswood All-Stop curtain has a black rectangle on the right with the word Ravenswood in white, with a white box on the left and the words All Stop in black, similar to signage for the Howard-Englewood-Jackson Park All-Stops. (Usually, Ravenswood All-Stops simply had an all black background the the word "Ravenswood" in large white letters.) (Photo by Doug Grotjahn, Collection of Joe Testagrose)
