QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS:
Our family lived a block away on S. Clinton. I was born in 1946. That woman with the baby carriage looks like my Mom, and we had one just like it. If that image was taken in the wintertime of 1947, it may be an early pic of me. ;-)
Tom, I withdraw my last comment. I took the image and enlarged it within PhotoShop. The woman with the baby buggy wasn't my Mom who was a bit slimmer.On that corner, the new Apai Photography studio was built jsut a few years after this image was taken.
Hi Tom, Just want to mention, that the car in the foreground, traveling north on Broad, is a 1946-47 Oldsmobile 98 Sedanet. That body was used on the Olds 98, Buick Super & Roadmaster & Cadillac Series 62. I've always admired these cars, because of the styling. rayfromvillapark
Thanks, Ray for your input; also for the observation that this graphic appeared in an earlier post. Your auto knowledge is incredible!Tom
HI TOM...ROEBLING AVENUE RAN RIGHT THROUGH CHAMBERSBURG AND I ALWAYS HELD MY BREATH WHILE DRIVING THERE. THE STREET WAS VERY NARROW WITH CARS PARKED ON BOTH SIDES, THOSE BUS DRIVERS ALSO HELD THEIR BREATH. TRENTON AND PHILADELPHIA HAD NARROW STREETS AND SOME STREETS IN PHILLIE WERE NOT WIDE ENOUGH TO ALLOW CARS THROUGH. THOSE RECENT STREET LAMPS ON ROEBLING AVENUE GAVE THE BURG AN ATTRACTIVE LOOK. REGARDS.
