The car on the left looks to be a '23 T.
Steve Tomaso - Nice downtown area in what sure looks like a nice little town. Now aren't you sorry you moved away from Milton Steve? Ha ha,.....harold
It has changed a little in the last 100 years.
Streetcar is gone too. Must be a Walmart nearby.

Wow - Milton just across the river from me. It's neat to see that first picture; sobering to see the second. Milton was a thriving industrial city on the Susquehanna, but things have changed a lot. The big business in the 19th century was woodworking equipment - Milton had several factories that produced the machines (Shrimer planers and such) that other companies around the U.S. bought to make all those wooden gee-gaws you see on Victorian buildings. The other big business was the American Car & Foundry Co., early builders of railroad tank cars. Most of that industry is gone though, except AC & F, which struggles on. Milton faded in the '50s, and by the early '90s much of the business district was unoccupied. Big chunks of that continue to fall down or burn down. You can still buy a Victorian mansion in Milton for pennies on the dollar. And there's so little traffic these days that it's a safe place to putter around in a Model T.
Milton's fall is not an uncommon American story, alas.
