Today’s Top 5

Dig we must

Five guys working, three checking for traffic and two (apparently) supervising. Times were only slightly different then.

"Painless Dentistry, 'All work guaranteed for 10 years."

Am I the only one to smoke out the wooden Indian standing on the corner?

What an intriguing neighborhood!

I would love to live here. This reminds me of city scenes in Marx brothers' or Charlie Chaplin's movies.
