Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.
Your task: answer the following about this photo, taken in my former hometown.
1. What year was it taken?
2. Identify the cars.
3. What the heck's going on here, anyway?
