Today we are in Providence, Rhode Island at the intersection of Weybosset and Richmond Streets. This entertaining image was taken on July 22, 1953, and is courtesy of the Providence, Rhode Island Archives. Amazingly it appears in a modern day street-view showing that the buildings and the street have not changed all that much in the last sixty-plus years.
On the street we see an interesting mix consisting of a Hudson, several Oldsmobiles, a Chevrolet taxi cab, a Ford station wagon and possibly a pre-war Mercury followed by a transit bus parked behind them at the curb. If you see anything notable in the photo or can date and share with our readers the models of the various different vehicles, please let us know. Over eighty more enjoyable vintage street scenes can also be seen here on The Old Motor.
