Shaking Things Up

We shake things up a little this week. You were expecting mystery person contest this morning? Well you get mystery street contest this morning. To win, you have to 1) Identify the Street, 2) Identify the City, and 3) Identify he decade the picture was taken. No credit for partially correct answers. First to get all three wins. This week, the gloves come off. I must defeat the evil Nate Maas. I must defeat you all.

  14. Thanks! (Blush!)

    I'm getting a chuckle out of this win. It's a twofer for me -- PJM and my husband! I was stumped after my first guess, so I handed this off to my husband who is a streetcar fan. He fixated on Kansas City.

    Now, what shall I do for the rest of the day?

  18. Well done Marie. I was going for
    State St, Chicago, your first
    comment. Got lost after that.

  22. Whoa! Coincidence department!

    Today, Sunday, 9/13/09, the website www.Shorpy.com has a photo taken in nearly the same spot, but in the 1890's.
