Do you guys think I'm right in thinking it looks like the TT and the fellow bending over at the right front fender are making a gasoline delivery to the Ford dealership underground tank? I'm thinking the little roof structure over the sidewalk is a pump island.

Yeh, I'd say so.

That's perzackly what's going on there. Thank goodness we have modern codes and safety standards to
get all this yuckiness "cleaned up". Who wants to have to look at such an ugly street scene such as this ?
Think of the lives forever scarred by such hideousness !

Ugly but yet cool. I like the TT and the Ford- Fordson sign. It would be great in my garage. Tim

You're so right Burger. From the look of things folks actually had to come in direct contact with dirt. Heaven forbid!!

Same spot today. Building where the Ford dealer was is still there.

TT tank truck is gone and so is the street light in the middle of the intersection.



Street is cleaner.

If you look at the wall right behind the fuel man you can see a circle with an arrow in it. This was a sign used by the Yellowstone Trail. You can still see the marker in 1957.

Pre-war street scenes have such "texture". Not just organic, but a rich and varied
combination of shapes and surfaces, signage, backset windows and entrances,
transoms, and the utilities/street lighting was beautiful. We have gone SO wrong in
turning everything ... what is the word ... "efficient" ??? Now, everything looks boarded
up and abandoned, like some post-riot ghetto scene .... and that is not only NORMAL,
it's CODE and encouraged ! (insert puking icon here)
