Comment: This photo is of me in costume as the Chauffeur in the play The Royal Family, by George S. Kaufman & Edna Ferber, at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park during the Playhouse's eighteenth season 1977-78. I was the Assistant Property Master at the Playhouse that season and the director of the show cast me as the Chauffeur even though I was not an actor. I had one line I gotcha. The Cincinnati Post did an article about all the animals in the show and this photo accompanied the article.

Comment: Looking at the old streetcar routes and the sign in the background John Scherz I'm guessing this is Freeman Avenue. The Neon Engineering is still in business, and has a similar car on their website.
