What Kind Of Airplane Is That?



Does anyone know what kind of airplane this is? Despite the cars in the background being from the late 1930's, my guess is that the plane was made after World War II.

The plane has been identified as a 1940's Aerocoupe.
Thanks to John from Troy, MI for the identification!

What City Is This?



Does anyone what city this is? My guess is Cleveland, Ohio.

Thanks to an anonymous poster for veryifying that this is indeed Cleveland, Ohio. The poster went on to give an in-depth discussion of the negative:

The large building at the center is the Rockefeller building, built on the site of the old Weddell House where Lincoln addressed a crowd of thousands on his way to the White House. The building is located on Superior Avenue. The wide bridge is the Detroit-Superior High-level Bridge, which is also known as the Veterans Memorial Bridge. One can see the center ramp where the old streetcars descended to the lower level to make the river crossing. Slightly more in the foreground is the New York Central viaduct and rails into the Cleveland Union Terminal. The photograph may have been taken from the Terminal Tower, which was built 1929. Towards Lake Erie one can see the Main Avenue Bridge and Whiskey Island. This picture is taken looking west.

Where Is/Was This?



Does anyone know where this is/was? Galley is the nautical term for kitchen so perhaps it was near water.

Ann’s Galley was located on Mound Road in Warren, Michigan. The restaurant was owned and operated by Ann and Charlie Grimes during the 1940’s and 1950’s. Sadly, Ann’s Galley no longer exists.

Where Is/Was This?



Does anyone know where this is/was? The "Lest We Forget" monument appears to be some type of memorial so I would imagine that it is still standing.

Just For Fun!



From time to time I will be adding pictures that are "Just For Fun!" No further information is being sought about the photos but comments are always welcome.

What Kind Of Cars Are Those?



Does anyone know what kind of cars are depicted in this photo? The license plates are dated 1944.

Thanks to Mika Jaakkola for identifying the car on the left as a 1939 Plymouth and to an anonymous poster for identifying the car on the right as a 1937 or 1938 Willys.
