Is there a forum that deals with the Staten Island Rapid Transit Co. I have pictures of 2 bridges that were built sometime in the 30's, but, I can't identify the streets.

The best place to discuss SIRT is MTA NYC Subway forum. If you're looking for historical aspects, I believe it was owned by the B&O, so check the fallen flag forum for information on the B&O.

B&O sold the rapid transit operation to the city in 1970.

Actually 1971 was when the B&O sold the SIRT to the City (that ran the B&O trains out of business by subsidizing buses at 1/2 the cost of the trains).
