Any idea what city this is from? Great photo.
It also messes up those of us who bookmark the last page so we know where to pick up again when we come back. Looks like we're up to near 30 pages...
We made the one on Rte 66 in Pontiac, IL a regular stop between Chicago and my grandparent's home in southern IL.
Looking at the shadows being cast in the bridge photo, I would tend to think this is on the west or south borders of Iowa instead of a bridge over...
Is this by chance Bemidji, MN? We went up there many times for vacation growing up in the '60s. I don't remember much other than the Paul...
You know that's a photo of a bunch of die-cast model cars, right?
Those are the F4U-5N Corsairs. They were the 4 cannon, night fighter versions and came out very late in WWII. They all had a radar pod mounted on...
Please pass the maple syrup. Why am I so hungry for pancakes all of a sudden?
My guess would be 1946 or earlier. Wasn't the red bar added to the insignia in 1947?

Great photo. Thanks for posting.

Unfortunately, this is a modern photo of the parking lot at the McDonald's Museum on Lee St in DesPlaines, IL.
You're from Chicagoland and you mispelled Soldier Field? :mad:
Looks like you mispelled your user name too.

Is that Sharon Tate?
The C-47 (DC-3) was made by Douglas. Those all look to be Boeing planes in the photo. Not sure what designation the twin engine personnel...
Are you referring to a fat girl? :D

The 1960 Ford 4dr sedans had the same back window.
Governor's limo? License plate #1, flag holder on the front fender and a siren speaker behind the grille.
A plastic model? At least it's an old snapshot.

The most annoying thing about the "quote" feature is that sometimes you have to scroll through the same photos again just to see someone's one or...
Why is that dude wearing a white tutu?
The old Custom House Museum in Monterey Bay. First built in 1814 and finished in the late 1840s. The street is long gone now and it's park of a...
