Yeah. Twenty years earlier, it would have been all horses and carriages. And you would have had to watch where you step much more closely.

As Dylan would say "Positively 42nd. Street."

"If all of the cars placed end to end would reach to the moon and back again, there'd probably be some fool that'd pull out to pass"

Nice picture. I like the fellow in the curb lane in the Touring looking over his shoulder I assume attempting to pull out in the flow of traffic. Yea good luck with that!

Imagine all the exhaust fumes! Looks like a big load of coal in that old wagon.

All most all sedans, very few tourings.

I wonder if they still used those train tracks? I don't see any overhead wires so it must have been used by a steam engine?

Norman T K, Probably left over from a horse-drawn trolley.

Tim W, Note, I did not say it smelled better than it did twenty years earlier. I thought about it myself, but considered the newer exhaust smells to be very different from the earlier aromas. Whether one or the other smells "better" is a matter of individual preferences. So I went with "watch where you step".

Love those cars! I want to step in and walk for an hour. Maybe stay for a show. Or two? I wonder who may be performing nearby? I just read some interesting articles on Harry Lauder and his career. He opened in New York in 1911. Should be pretty close.

If you look closely there is a trolly mid way up in the picture and the rear corner of one at the bottom left. There are no buses that I can see so I would assume this was before they replaced trolly cars on 5th Avenue

Looks like 2 0clock around Atlanta Ga.
