What city? Michigan Ave. sounds like Chicago, but Cass doesn't, and air quality looks like L.A.

Sure like the looks of that little truck at lower left!

Detroit, I think.

Interesting extra wide box on that pickup in the lower LH corner. He must have had to space it up for it to extend over the tops of the rear fenders. I wonder if he was still able to lower and stow his top?

Looks like the Model T is the dominant car. It is Detroit after all. I've driven through that intersection a few times. Yes, it really is as boring as the current view suggests.

Notice the front street car is coupled to the one behind it.

I'm from Detroit and let me tell you in the 70s and 80s at 10:00 pm it was anything but boring.
