    After enlarging the picture, I agree. What are the odds that two Studebakers would get in a random picture of the street? Not something you see very often.

    Part of what makes this photo special is that is was taken underway and is not posed/staged. Photograph with film usually required a steady platform to avoid blurred images and due to the expense most photos were of specific subjects at specific events. So a random clear image of traffic and a skyline taken while driving/riding is fairly unique (IMO). Thanks for sharing.

    A pickup being used as normal in the day. Pickups were for tradespeople and businesses, not generally used as regular transportation.
