Delightful!! The cars, the South Shore sign, and even a phone-booth-- a nice look back!

I remember when my parents had cars like these mid-fifties GM tanks. Great shot, Marty!

I don't remember exactly where it was, but someplace in Gary, I visited friends around this time as a child. I could watch the South Shore Line to the south and then look across the highway (north) and see the PRR, B&O, C&O, NYC, EJ&E (and I am probably missing one or two) - all of their flagship/crack passenger trains in and out of 'the Windy'. Boy do I wish I knew then, what I know now. Thanks for the memories Marty - always appreciated.

Lets do the timewarp again. The cars, the buildings and, of course, the South Shore coach really capture the era.

The cars are: the 2nd in line is a 55 Buick Special the first in line is 58 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 the parked car is most likely a 59-60 Pontiac but could be an Oldsmobile.

In addition to the many other nostalgic items noted is the mail box. I miss the days when the USPS went to the trouble and expense of painting the tops red.

Great Photo ! Love all about it, the cars also. Looks to be a 60 Olds curbside

That's a '58 Olds on the left. I had a '58 Starfire 98 convertible. Pretty sure that's a '57 Buick 4 door sedan behind it. Likely a '59 Pontiac 2 door hardtop on the inside. My grandpa took his '59 Bonneville to Ireland in 1960 and met me and my Aunt Mary there. CIE was still running steam engines then. Wish I had a camera....

This is just mind blowing on so many levels. Would be cool to do a shot of this location today for contrast. Its probably on here somewhere.
