That's about how it looks today, but all the cars would be Rob's fleet.

Must be the saloon down at the end of the street. See where most of the cars are?
There is a Ford sign under the Garage sign.

Interesting that a little farm town in Nebraska in the whatayathink? mid twenties? had at least five auto garages on main street.

And all the garages made a living and bought groceries from the five grocery stores, and banked at one of the three banks, and ate at one of the many restaurants .Sunday the families all went to one of about five churches. No stores open on Sunday that was a family day. Now look at any town in rural America, it is sad to see what has happened with our small towns. It will never be as prosperous as the 30s-50s era.

I spent three years in Milford (attending SCC) and even lived on that street. If I remember correctly there is only one connecting street so it is either down more on the left or behind the photographer.

We had an apartment upstairs of an old building that had been condemned but was refurbished and used to house college students. I can still remember hearing mice walk on the ceiling panels and the famous sit and swivel your legs toilet in the cramped bathroom.

Don't remember the streets being that wide though. But usually after Thursday night I didn't remember anything :-).

In Heaven There is no Beer
That's why we drink it Here
When we're gone from Here.....

I have fond memories of the times during my youth spent in Eastern Nebraska.

I didn't see Rob when I looked it up on Google Earth, but I did find Heyen Tax & Accounting Service, which is really close to where this picture might have been taken. It doesn't appear that any of the buildings survived. Either that, or they were radically altered.

Milford had a huge tornado in 1957 that took out a lot of the old buildings. That is why you can't find most of those old buildings.

I'm going to make this my desktop picture at work so I can escape. Yes, life must have been tougher back then. But it also had to be more simple.
