Grandpa Grimme traveled a lot, and took a lot of Kodachromes with his Argus C3. This was in a slide tray that included a lot of friends, and clearly the photos were taken all over the country.

Time frame appears to be late 40s, based on the cars, and the slide frames, manufactured between 1939 and 1949. But I love the photo. Hope y'all do, too - and maybe there's a better detective out there than I have been. View full size.
