A lady was shopping for something she could put on the seat when she rides on a streetcar, bus or subway. “I’m tired of sitting on the filth,” she said.
I helped her look through the placemats, for something that could be wiped clean pretty easily. One of the mats reminded me of that rubbermat shelf lining that comes in rolls, so we took a look at that, too.
My choice might have been one of the cushions in the photo. Not only a good filth barrier, but a bit of comfort to enhance the flocked steel seats that replace the old upholstered ones.
