Today’s feature image according to the source was taken on September 30, 1939, at the intersection of Broad Street and Exchange Place in New York City. This location is at the heart of the financial district and is next to the New York Stock Exchange building.
Visible in this street scene is a wide variety of late-1920s to ’39 automobiles, along with a mail truck and beer truck filled with barrels of ale. However, the clear standout here from a styling perspective is a rare early Lincoln Zephyr coupe powered by a V-12 engine. The majority of the vehicles appear to be standard everyday cars with the exception of the Lincoln and the long and light-colored sedan at the top right of the photo in front of the traffic signal light.
