In Milan, this streetcar shade of orange has similar public utility significance as phonebox red in Britain. San Francisco F-Line has a few of these excellent wooden interior, Milan streetcars (treno della via??) complete with Italian adverts. The Milan natives of the species are less venerated than the SF group, getting the usual graffiti treatment. It’s like going on safari and seeing lions in the wild, when you’ve only seen them in the zoo.
In Brighton, a visitor. Escaped, or captured from California highways? People slow down for this one too, but instead to adjust their mental frames. An effective reality distortion field. It’s a replica, from a Vauxhall I think, and not entirely accurate .. “Sheriff” on the front hood, but that’s ok, I don’t expect non-Americans to get the subtleties of our police state.
