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.
