More From "1937Fan"
It's time for more great photos, thanks to "1937Fan", who so generously allowed me to share these with you. The pictures were taken by her aunt back in 1964 (the day after Thanksgiving).
The setting November sun has left half of Main Street in cool shadows - it's hard to tell, but I think the clock on Main Street Station only reads "4:20" or so. It's definitely "sweater weather". I love seeing the classic old Main Street shops, like the Carnation Ice Cream Parlor, the Sunkist Citrus House, and The Coke Corner.
Here's a pretty and colorful picture taken at the Plaza, with a Horseless Carriage, a Horse Drawn Streetcar, and a Surrey all rounding the bend. Hello, House of the Future! It's funny, the taller boy sitting on the bench appears in a couple of photos in this batch, and I thought he might be the son of 1937Fan's Aunt. But she says that she does not recognize him!
And here's a second view of the Plaza, bustling with people. Everything looks so great! You can see Auntie standing just to the right of the ice cream vendor's cart, facing us (and wearing sunglasses).
Thank you, 1937Fan!
