    Some of these cars look to be going the wrong way in these four lanes to the lower right. Must be on LSD.
    I suspect its rush hour with reversible lanes in effect.

            Yes, Look at the bottom center and see the stanchion post that defines the lane separation. Apparently people back then understood what it was for and didn't need big flashing signs to direct traffic.

              That it is. Was making a Chicago joke. This is Lake Shore Drive.

                      Will give it a try. Not home right now, so can't do it anyway. And not looking forward to having to re-learn how to post pictures. Have studiously avoided it for the past six months.

                            Wow! Two 54 wagons and a Ford wagon.

                            Does anyone else think this looks like a black and white photo that has been colorized?
