Four years later with the new Liberty sign and Jean Arthur again on the marquee this time in “Too Many Husbands.” This time Jean is married to Melvyn Douglas, but then husband No. 1, Fred MacMurray, thought dead shows up. The comedy was pulled from W. Somerset Maugham’s play Home and Beauty. The release date was 1940, the year when most of Seattle’s track trolleys were also released – or let go and scrapped. This scene – from trolley fan Lawton Gowy or his dad – is probably about Car No. 2 waiting for passenger to come aboard before it returns to its run south along First Avenue. Note the bus – or pehraps trackless trolley – a block north on First. (Courtesy, Lawton Gowey)
