As much as I LOVE this picture, I question it's authenticity as I am not finding any shadow from the Flyer. I WANT this to be real, but I'm thinking period photoshop. Unless, the Flyer's shadow is just beyond the left rear wheel of the second wagon with the milk cans.

Jay, your skill at finding these fantastic pictures is unmatched. Bravo.

The Ebay listing for the pic implies that the Wright flyer was added onto the original picture.

That's a common style of novelty postcard - airplane down main street. It is a cut and paste job.

Note that the guy on the left by the power pole isn't looking up. If there was actually an airplane in that spot at that time he'd be looking, no doubt.

What's harder to believe, in spite of the masses of photographic evidence, is
that our world once looked this cool, and that WE turned into the sterilized, ugly
mess we are forced to look at today. :-P

Burger, It is all part of the plot to disguise the worst corruption since the fall of the Roman Empire, by putting a facade of clean sterility in front of it.

Interesting to me is the building to the immediate left of the clock- "Furniture and UNDERTAKING"!

That's quite a combo... but I bet they had some nice coffins!

Not surprising at all.

It was very common for undertakers to also be in the furniture business.

Furniture for life, and afterlife.

On top of year being off, the Wright Flyer pictured is a later version (circa 1905-1909). You can tell by the shape of the wings.

The old picture of Wright flyer is really beautiful. It resembles the hard work and achievement of the Wright Brothers.

My dad was born in Kansas City, Kansas and had a funeral parlor for a neighbor. He told me that if kids messed with his equipment he would slam the hearse door closed and laugh wildly. Took only one session to break them of trespassing. The undertaker, dad said, would take furniture and old clothes for payment and people could go to his store and buy the furniture, dishes, clothes, old used eye glasses and (gross of all to me) used false teeth. I'd pass.
