I would like to have some of those cars.. Great Pic!!Tim
I like the single street lamp. Bet it didn't put out much light but at the time was probably the cats ass!
Is that a gas pump or something else at the curb on the right side of the old picture? It seems to have a hose.
I really like all these old town pictures thanks for posting them.
It must be very hot Roseau in the second picture looks like the buildings are starting to melt.
Looks like RED CROWN gasoline to me.
I have one of those streetlights out in front of my house.
It gives off a wonderful soft glow with a simple 6w LED retro
Edison style bulb. As I found them in service years ago,
they often carried 300w incandescents that lit up a large
area light a bomb.
When I began restoring these and putting them back into
service, I hunted up a 300 watter and immediately took it
out ..... OBNOXIOUS ! I ran straight 60w clear incandescents
in them for the past 15 years, but with the advent of LED
retro styled bulbs, did some experimenting and the 6s
Edisons look good and give off a real nice, warm light.
Thanks, for sharing this. I can finally see what my grandfather saw when he was a child. He grew up on a farm about ten miles from this intersection. When I was a child, he told me lots of stories about the mischief that he got into when his dad brought him into town. I always knew it would be a good story when it started with the line "I and Jeffery Reesberg..."
Very neat, I just had breakfast at the cafe in the building right behind the red car on Saturday!
Great to hear!
Interesting summer shot of life in Roseau. I wonder how many cars you'd see on that street back in the day during the winter?
Brian..how do you post those Google Earth pics?
with my PC I use the Snipping Tool that came with the software. It allows you to select and save anything that shows on the monitor. It's the icon at the bottom of the screen with the scissors. Once you have the view you want to snip, click on the icon and you can select what you want to save. I usually use the Paint tool that also came with the computer to make adjustments. Usually the pics are too large so I resize them down.
