The Car

...is a 1934 Chrysler rumble seat coupe.

Same power pole!

The pole in the modern view appears to be the exact same one that was there in 1936.

Frozen in Time...

I am always amazed at how clean most of the streets are in most of these old photos. What is even more amazing is the current version is almost as clean as the original.

I also find it interesting that the telephone pole and some other features seem to be very similar in both photos.

Still an Alley
