A Pic of aPic
Photo was taken from the many pics that were displayed from various merchants doing buisness along Broadway. Friendly folks investing in their Dreams of a City on the move!
This would have been a scene that could have come from my early days when Dad and Mom brought my brother and I to the Big Town! One or two visits a year were the norm!
Buy an Oldsmobile, And stay a Night on Us!
Just a tongue in cheek statement! But at the time this photo was taken many people came from the rural areas of Oklahoma to see the latest offerings of new and used cars that were available. An overnight stay was required. Broadway was "Automobile Alley"! Every Brand and Dream from Detroit , Studebakers from Indiana, and many more were displayed! And I'm sure the competition was keen!
Worse for wear, check out last pic, this Guy even with a few boarded windows, is still holding court over his end of 'Automobile Alley'. Rumor has it, that the work will begin soon to bring this building back to an 'Uptown' address.
Kickn' Broadway was fun and brought back memories. Perhaps we will do it again, with new angles! Automobile Alley with it's long time association from the early days of automobiles, makes a new challange! Food for thought!
