I've posted this here before and I thought it was worth sharing again for those who might have missed it the first go-around.

Looks like a run down mining town from the '30s.

It's a great photo depicting life in a mining town. It immediately made me think of the mining towns up on the iron range where I grew up. The company housing seems to be the same style.

Yes it was time again. These cars were the same as each other when they left the factory. They took on their own personality as time went on. Even today and after restoration you don't often see two just alike.

Thanks

Rich

Seven chimneys and no smoke. No sign of human life. Not even a chicken,dog, horse or cow. Maybe it is the town that wanted a one way street like the bigger towns had. When they got one, every one left town and could not get back.

I wonder what that is at the top right of the windshield? Is it a bracket? A stiff wire? A vacuum hose?

Norman, I have wondered about that too. It could be part of the glass channel from where the glass has broken out. I can't reason why tubing would be there.

Norm, Is it a lever to tilt the windshield?

Look just over the top of the back seat on the T and you can see a car out front of the house. If you look at the railroad cars it looks like cars parked next to them too.

That's a flexible microphone for an early bluetooth.

Enough detail to make it interesting. Enough lack of detail to make it intriguing.

It is a bracket for the fragrant mound condensor.

That steering wheel nut looks like the one on my 2004 Cavalier. Ignition tumbler broke and my ex-wife got some imbeciles to work on it when I was at work so she could have a car. They lost a lot of parts. We divorced, I fixed it and had to use an upside down lug nut to hold the steering wheel on. I threw the airbag/horn in the trunk and threw away most of my broken plastic dash. Bad part is you don't even need to remove the steering wheel to replace the lock cylinder like older model cars.
