Today’s Top 5

Pretty much a one-horsepower town

Apparently, to really lay skid marks, you needed a brace of mules.


I wonder what is in the windows that looks like a bunch of elephant tusks?

[The windows have been soaped -- there's nothing inside except for some crates. - Dave]

5 Floors Up

I see the rear window.


Check out the clown feet on the young boy standing on the far left corner, gazing at the fountain. Perhaps his feet were not that big and the shoes were not his. So many stories from one photo.

[They look normal to me. Then again, if there's one thing I've learned in the past few years it's that you can never underestimate the commentariat's knowledge of, and interest in, feet and shoes. - Dave]

Window dressing

Lady on the 5th floor of the building on the right. Second window from the right edge. First time on Shorpy to see a woman sitting side saddle on a window sill.

Chock full.

This photo is amazing! So much to see.
