Downtown Bennington Vermont

Downtown Bennington, Vermont, is shown in this University of Vermont photo, which Dan Strohl has posted on Bennington, Vermont, based Hemmings Motor News. We are looking up VT Route 7 north, towards the intersection of VT Route 9, which runs east to west across the scenic southern Vermont mountains. Based on the newest cars you can see on the street, can you help Dan and UVM put a date on this photo?
