If it were 50 years later we could see and hear the Three Sons.

74 N. Pearl Street

And still there.

The daily double!

Two distro rings in this one. One is almost hidden by the arc lamp on the left, the other sports the sinage for The Kenmore.

It also seem s the street sweepers missed a lot of horse "exhaust"!


Painless Dentists.

Wagon wheel telephone distribution

I can't get over the feeling looking at these wheels that they remind me of the Peter Breughel paintings of the middle ages with the wagon wheels mounted on poles with people or skeletons on them of people who had been "broken on the wheel" maybe I am just morbid ?

She's a Grand Old Flag

Nice photo for Flag Day! One wonders if the Kenmore was possessed of an overabundance of everyday patriotism, or if it was Independence Day. (The Internet tells me that Flag Day wasn't established until 1916.)

Flag Day

Quite appropriate photo considering today is Flag Day.

Still There

And looking great.

Stars and Stripes

It is either Flag Day or around the Fourth of July. I count about 39 flags. Great photo!
