Fill My Interior with Inviting Seating

About the Project

The restoration of the interior and exterior of Capital Traction Company 27 in its 1930s livery is nearing completion.  The beautiful varnished interior highlights the few surfaces painted in ivory and gray.  The final touch is adding newly upholstered seating in textured dark green as shown.  Capital Traction Company 27 entered service at the end of World War I and served the Nation's Capital through the end of World War II.  Help the Museum get it ready for its 100th anniversary.
