Good one, thanks Jay. I'll send that to my cousin, she lives in MJ
Is that how they usually park in Moose Jaw? All of the cars I can see are backed in on an angle.
If the car on the left is a 20's Overland at least one of the front and rear springs is parallel to the side walk.
Great picture. I've always liked the name "Moose Jaw"

Be glad you don't live in the next town !!
That postcard would have been issued after the old train station was razed and the new Italianite style station was built, complete with a clock tower.
The clock seen on the left side is City Hall. That clock has to be wound by hand.
Yeah, I think the next town over is Moose Knuckle where they all park in the ditch.
yes thats a mod 91 overland.charley
Thanks Charlie. I thought you would know.
Is that "Ass in a Boa" music store?
Today it is the Cornerstone Bar and Grill
8 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 3J6
don't know how to capture image from google
That's Assiniboia music - they parked like that through the 20s and then changed to nose- in angle parking. Interesting, many of the buildings in that picture still stand today- as Moose Jaw has done an excellent job of preserving their historic downtown.
one of the cars is still there .......
I clipped it from the 8 Main Street you had.
If you move down the street some, you can see the clock tower a little better.
Ken in Texas
Here's what you would see if looking backwards (or south) from Jay's photo. This new CPR station was nearly complete.
What's the matter? Can't anyone spell Saskech... Sanskats... Sascetup... Sask. Oh heck.
That like trying to pronounce Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Ken!
A lot of those buildings are still standing, in spite of a couple of major fires downtown, usually at this time of year for some reason. Next time you come to MJ Iíll take you to this corner (right in front of the old train station). That first building on the left has been a tavern for decades and is now a brew pub called the Cornerstone. I can see the City Hall tower further down on that side. Itís still there, too, but the clock rarely works. We have some nice old buildings.
This is from a post card when my Great Grand dad had a farm in SK.
