Today’s street scene photograph was taken from high above one of the principal streets in Elmira, New York. The City is located in the southern center of upstate New York about 15-miles north of the New York and Pennsylvania border.
The photo was taken just as marchers in a parade were passing underneath a railroad bridge at the far-right hand top of the image; note the flags on both curbs, bystanders waiting, and kids on bicycles just behind the last car in front of the marchers.
The oldest car in the scene appears to be a mid-1930s sedan, possibly a Packard halfway up the street on the left. One of the newest vehicles, a 1941 Ford Police or Fire Department car is at the far-left hand bottom of the image.
