    Glenn, In the State Street, Johnstown picture the movie playing is from 1928. Of course, if Johnstown was behind the times in those days, it may be a late run

      In the State Street, Johnstown picture the movie playing is from 1928.
      Of course, if Johnstown
      was behind the times in those days, it may be a late run for a film...

        Thanks for making the photos available again.

        The one for Cayadutta Street in Gloversville was apparently taken
        whenever the 1929 Chandler was announced, for that fact is heralded
        on the sign over the dealership door.  I suspect that the others were
        taken around that time.

        What struck me was how little things seemed to change from then until
        the late 50s, say 1959.  Then everything changed!  We saw this August
        how little of what is seen in the street scenes remains today.

        This makes me even more thankful that someone had the presence of
        mind (even if s/he didn't know it) to make a photographic record of
        that moment in time.

             Glenn
