Notice the pedestrians in perfect lockstep.

The first self driving cars. Put your wheels against the rails and let go.

Any comments about the coupe (nearest car in the photo)??? I looked at it as closely as my limited computer skills would allow (zoomed in until fuzzy), but still don't know what to say about it.
Behind the coupe, is a delivery truck, with rolled up canvass sides. Just beyond that is a touring car that I think is a mid '10s Studebaker.
Wonderful photo!
Thanks again Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Looks like a 1926 Chevrolet coupe to me.

That was my first thought also, Layden. But the closer I looked, the less it looked like a Chevrolet. It does have nice drum style headlamps, and similar cowl lamps (like Chevrolet did during some of those years. But the body details (limited as I am to what I can see), Don't quite look like any Chevy coupe that I am familiar with. And then there is the radiator shell. Unfortunately, you can only see a very small part of it.
It could be a '26 Chevy. But I am not convinced yet.
Thank you.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

It looks like a '26 T with aftermarket headlights, but then there is the cowl lights, which is typical Chevrolet.

Looks like 26 with a different headlights set up....
