Great pic Jay. Gorgeous bldgs. Looks to be late fall or early spring..some trees have leaves, some don't. Nice contrast in transportation, with what looks like a '12? with a horse 'n buggy behind it.

As with most of the modern pics to bad "progress" hit the buildings that are left.

Dan, I was about to say that the years don't seem to have improved the place. Sad.

Nothing sad about it. Nice neighborhood and a great place to live. All of the buildings are still there and if you don't expect some changes (however minor) in 100 years you're living in a dream.

Minor changes ? You better look again.

Every cool detail in the old photo has been wiped bare or covered
over with fecal matter. Accepting the wanton sterilization of our
environment as "to be expected" is pretty lame. Why not just drive
a KIA ? Because it really isn't THAT much different than a Model T.

Argument for arguments sake. All alterations are minor on all the buildings in both pics. I'll give you the first one on the left. Apparently a 3rd. story has been added. Their all still there. The only actual major change is that the RR no longer goes thru there. I repeat: nice neighborhood great place to live. I have no idea what the Kia business is about.
