After years of anticipation, the Silver Line has already become another mundane part of Metro riders’ commutes.
Yet it was just a month ago today that exuberant children and train enthusiasts were earnestly waving pennants as they waited to board the first train on opening day. Pennant swag is nothing new — the tradition dates back to Metro’s groundbreaking on Dec. 9, 1969.
The transit agency dug into its archives to show us some of the fabulously of-their-time relics. Remember any of these?
