Kilroy Was Here, Claims Trolley Car
James J. Kilroy, a Bethlehem Steel Co. employee from Halifax, supervises the loading, in Chemical lane, Everett, today, of the 44-foot-long trolley car he won by writing the winning letter in a "Kilroy Was Here" contest sponsored by the American Transit Ass'n (sic.) The car, being hoisted aboard a trailer truck, will be taken over the road to be used to house six of Kilroy's nine children.
