    Super pic Chris!!!! From the looks of that covered parking meter on the right, I'd say there's a good chance a parade or something is going to be passing by soon.

    Love the pic Chris, I also wouldn't mind a car like that in the rear of the photo for my layout.

    What a great picture, Chris. Oh, to have been alive then. :)


    And, speaking of the car in the picture...how about one like this, Shamus?

    It's a Road Champs "Classic Scenes" 1934 Ford in 1/43 scale. Comes in a little plastic display case, and even has a crossbuck with it. Can usually be found for about four and a half to five quid.
