A bevy of beauties flank and fondle the new 1937 Packard.
771 Broadway, 1937.
Thanks for these Maggie, My late wife and I used to take the ferry from Anacortes to Friday harbor every time we went to visit her mom. That's too cool!
Building the Empire State, 1930.
Although the bears are discouraged from this kind of interaction with humans at Yellowstone anymore, you can still experience a "bear jam" where everyone stops to look at a bear. One of the employees favorite pranks is to stop on the side of the road, point, then watch everyone behind them stop while trying to see what is out there. They then drive off.
Did they make a run for it?
Highway 80, Forth Worth, Texas, 1938.
New Madrid Ferry 1938

WOW...That '36 Dodge Brothers humpback truck sure is thrashed for being only 2 years old!
I'm almost certain they did.
Here's my grandmother working as a civilian at Fort Chaffee, she was there when the famous "Elvis getting a Army haircut" photos were taken.
Do they still have summer camps for kids?
Looks like trouble here, still the same way 60+ years later.
31 Dodger Did I get the date wrong on this picture?I can't tell if that is sarcasm in your post.I usually just post the date or info that I find with the photo if there is any.If not then your right that humpback is beaten up pretty good.
Ester Eddie, I don't think he's being sarcastic, just stating what I was also thinking. The Dodge panel truck would only be 2 years old in 1938. It sure had a rough life if the date on the picture is correct. Lots of times the photo info isn't correct, but I don't see anything in the picture to date it any later. Even if it's early 40's the poor panel still had a rough life.
now dats funny right there
My sister and brother-in-law live there, and we grew up sailing the San Juan and Gulf islands every summer - I'd love to live there if I could afford it.
Do you have a bigger copy of this shot? I am trying to read the town listed in the star. Thanks in advance.
