Tom, you may be correct. Judging from the shadows this was the Dye Street side of S. Broad on the site shown below. The backsmith shop was long gone by my time, but I knew a few Rue family members in the neighborhood. Greg Rue was a pin-boy at Heils who eventually wound up selling Datsuns up on Prospect Street.
In the forties, fifties, and maybe the sixties, there were two businesses on this site. IIRC, a Sunoco station was at the Dye Street intersection.
Where the two cars are parked was a diner - was it the Broadway Diner? I went in there a couple of times for toast and hot chocolate while out shoveling snow for a few bucks.
Thank for your kindness. I didn't expect this and it was a pleasant surprise.
