What a mess! All that mud probably has a good supply of road apples mixed in with it.
Looks like any road in AFG in January.
I think I'd rather have a horse in that town.
Main street? Looks more like the main canal!
The Good Old Days were not All Ways quite so good.
My God those cars are all pigged up! Bill you're right, those days weren't all that good really.
Oddly enough, Burkburnett TX doesn't appear to have a Main Street these days.
Yes, it is 3rd Street at Avenue C and a little cleaner today.
I tried to load the picture this morning before lunch and finally gave up. It took three tries tonight. I'm not sure if it is my service or what.

I wouldn't want to drive my cars in that mess.
I just happen to be from Burkburnett, Texas. We moved away when I was in high school, 1966. I still have family there. At the far left end of the Google picture the large building with the orange tree next to it used to be Wolfe Ford. It had upstairs auto storage for cars. I slipped up there in 1964 and saw the '64 1/2 Mustang right before it was released for sale. Gosh, that car knocked America's eyes out! I wanted one sooo bad! ha! Anyway, First National Bank of Burkburnett is there now. The 3rd or 4th of the row buildings on left was my dad's business, The Burk Furniture Mart. The old picture shows a oil drilling derrick above the building roofs on the left. This area was called the 6666 Ranch, with Nesterville being the first settled area. The 6666 ranch was called that because Samuel B. (Burk) Burnett won this land in a poker game. When a post office was authorized by the postal department the name was changed to Burkburnett. Oil discovery created this town in a very short time ( 0 to 18,000)and paving was the last thing on the wildcatter's mind. There were hundreds of derricks in town, and after the wells were drilled, the pump jacks were operated with hit and miss motors. When I was a kid there were a zillion laying everywhere, the wells having been converted to electrical power by then. THANKS SO MUCH for posting this photo. What memories it brought back for me.
