Thanks, Chris.  And, at that time, that street was a part of US Highway 45, which has since been re-routed.  The scene would have been quite different on a Saturday, which was the day that all of the farm folk came to town to shop, replenish supplies, and visit.  Then, parking spots would have been hard to find.  Wagons, drawn by horses or mules, parked behind the sunlit buildings, which had loading ramps beyond the back doors.

I really like old scenes like that one, Jim.  The empty roads look remarkable 
now, from this small island, anyway.

Nathan's recent B&W images set me to thinking about older images.  With the 
tools available today, older scanned images can undergo considerable improvement.  
Here is a small town street scene from my home town, shot in 1952 with my Leica 
IIIa and 50/3.5 Elmar.  Processed with LR and PS with help from Focus Magic and 
Neat image.
