        Oh, huh? Sorry, during the hunt for the Studebakers I was briefly distracted by the still in use interurban rails running down the middle of the street. That's a trademark of the photos prior to the 60's of most of the pictures, especially in the smaller towns, as buses had not come into their own yet.

          Look beyond the Studebaker and I believe I see a Minneapolis-Moline factory buidling. Looks to be a M-M sign above the corner doors.

            If it is, Milaca, that would account for The Steel Inn directly across the street! <GGG>

            BTW, is that a prewar Hudson product behind the shoebox Ford convertible?

            'Neat photo! Thanks. (As interesting as we find it to be, it's one of those photos that you wonder why it was originally taken. Any ideas?) BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            Ayn Rand:
            "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

            G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
