Overland, Velie, Ford, REO and Rambler! How did I do? Marvelous buildings too.
Good job Herb.
the overland is a 1909 mod 31 with a planetary transmission, 110' wheelbase, 27' wheels, looks like french gray. i have one like it.there are 10- 09s known and i have 5 of them.40 yars of gathering.charley
also i think the third car could be another velie with a different body,could be wrong???????. charley
Damn, you guys are not only quick but good!!!!!
It's much different today. All those buildings are gone.
I think the second car from the right is another Velie, and the third car is a Ford, any way you look at it.
Can't help but notice the equine exhaust in the center of Main Street.
Wonder what the standards would be in Califunny for that kind of emission? Oh, wait! That's pretty much all they emit out there these days, so it passes their smell test!
It would be examined for texture, consistency, color, oder, weight, volume, gases, solid particles and moisture content. Then a ratio would be established between these findings and the same characteristics in the original hay. Once the data is compiled there would then be a lengthy and heated debate in the legislature over what modifications to the horses digestive system are needed to control the offending components. Once this process is competed horse breeders would begin the process of developing an all electric horse.
No one would notice all the horse s##t burned in remote locations to generate the power needed to charge the electric horse each night.
That is too funny! Here in Texas, our legislators just shovel in loads of it on the House & Senate floors so they feel at home! They are careful not to step in it, however they keep a bit of in their hip pockets for identification purposes only.
Thankfully, they only get together every two years, so not too much damage is done!
I seem to remember I while back, they thought about only allowing electric vehicles in the City of Angels. My first thought was how and where were they going to produce the extra electricity needed?
"Main Street" is now 2nd Street in Home, Kansas, today. The "A" is at the intersection where the photo was taken 105 summers ago. You can see it was the "Main Drag" years ago.
The little google man has to look across the tombstone patch. The 1909 Model T was in the left corner of this photo where the propane tank is.
Things just keep changing on us all the time!

The buildings are gone but it looks like the town's people are still there, sort of.
Street view is constantly expanding. Eventually it will probably show the rest of the town.
Looks like there was some dust control being done.
The building in the lower picture is missing in the plan view. Going fast!
