Nice pic as always Jay! Those are some beautiful buildings. Wonder if any of 'em are still there? Someone will surely post a current Google Earth shot of it. I love those street lamps, reminds me of the kind that I used to have on my model train setup.

Check out the street lamps.

The buildings are really nice looking.

Well! How 'bout that one Burger? Once in awhile, preservation prevails! One of the very few things that looks different in the modern picture is the curb doesn't look as high, however, I'm betting it's even the same curb bordering a street level that's just a bit higher due to at least a couple of paving projects over the years.

Thanks Jay for another great old photo, and thanks Ken for another nearly identical picture from nearly a hundred years later! (.....I love these kinds of comparisons, especially when they're as delightful as this one!)

Thank you, thank you for bringing the pictures and the "then and now" comparisons!!!
