Spooky, Empty

Empty? "Room for one more." What atmosphere in this pic.

Lights, please

There's just something I love about streetlights with clear incandescent bulbs, such as this one. Here in Connecticut they're all but extinct (Stonington Borough is the last town of which I'm aware that still has these).

Still blows my mind that these go for a couple hundred dollars on eBay.

Ahead of its time?

Either this car is moving away from us with a hidden motorman or there's a phantom driver piloting it driving toward us. I didn't know they had driverless vehicles already back in 1943.

Ghost car
