Everybody's stopped to help the guy with the flat tire. Or to watch. Looks like a big Sunday outing. And what's up with the ladder on that house roof?

I like the bedding being aired out on the second floor balcony.

The ladder's are probably to clean chimney. The house to the left has one to.

That's an interesting lean the front wheels on the car on the left has. I wonder if it's an optical illusion.

Looks like a Model T tour, one guy stops to fix a flat and 20 others stop to offer advice on how to do it. :-) They better hurry or they will miss the ice cream stop!

I think the picture is skewed, the cars on the right are leaning inward too.

Dallas, you're probly right, but you'd think they'd put the dang thing closer to the chimney! Pretty steep roof to go walking over even on the ridge. Yeh, I like the bedding getting the farts aired out of 'em too! Accurate description Dennis!

The "ladder" on the near building leads to a dormer, not a chimney. It is interesting that they nailed their ladders to the roof, either they were really inexpensive or you needed an excuse not to loan them to a neighbor.

The rear seat passenger in the 1913 touring on the left isn't wearing a hat, pretty rare in a street scene photo.

That lean looks like a short focal length lens aberration.

IMHO, TH

Terry, in those days you didn't go out and buy a ladder. If you needed one, you made it yourself. (I still do - depending on the use)
