This street scene was taken on November 1, 1940, at the intersection of West 7th and Henderson Streets in Fort Worth, Texas. This picture was taken on the same day at about the same time as another image documenting traffic issues in the City featured here earlier. That image includes a complete view of the Mastin-Parris Motor Co. None of the structures in this photo have survived.
The oldest car visible here is a circa 1926-’28 sedan waiting in line at the traffic signal. The most interesting vehicle in this photo is either 810 or 812 light-colored Cord convertible that is the first automobile in the line-up at an outdoor Used Car Dealer’s lot located down the street on the right.
