Another pristine photo courtesy of R.C. Maxwell and the Duke University Library showing a very rural Chambers Street. I am hoping that our resident Broad Street Park historian Jim Colello will post it on his site, and perhaps share his comments on this site. 

It took me the better part of an hour to complete this post. There is some sort of virus or malware infecting my computer and I will be closing down for maintenance. This problem has been going on since Monday and it has resulted in less than my normal activity in posting. The internet, Photoshop and Adobe Reader are all being impeded in their operation, as is Google Earth and access to the editor on I'm sure there are more, and a complete computer scan will be performed. With the HUGE number of files and folders on this computer, the scan will take hours.
Bear with me, and I'll be back in a few hours.

Hi Tom, If you are asking the location in this photo, I believe I recognize it. The street coming in from the left, alongside the gray building, is Genesee St. and the street in front of the three billboards, is Lida St. Just out of the picture to the right, would have been Chamber St. Auto Body. The rear part of the gray building , where the garage door is located, was also their paint location. At one time in the late 1940's, the gray building housed a Kaiser Frazer dealership. The door was the main entrance, and the building widened to where two cars( I believe) could be parked inside. This dealership later moved to Bordentown, on Route 130, where Lubik Oldsmobile was located a few years ago. That same building served as a Hudson dealership. Next block up, would be the traffic light at South Clinton Ave. rayfromvillapark
