One of those cars would be . . . spiffy. Nice cards.
Seeing that card makes me feel old. Most of the brick buildings were still there in the 60’s when I was a kid.
What a great area. I’ve been to old haunts and it’s always like, WTF? Yet . . . there’s still a few friendly ghosts left. “Hearts in Atlantis” by Steven King was a nice break from his usual gore fest, and based on heartfelt nostalgia and looking back (to being a kid in the sixties). The book stays with you; the movie left a lot out.
Hey Sekan, how’s about a present day photo of Broadway?
That would make for a better post, huh? Maybe I’ll still do that, thanks!
