Where Is This?

Does anyone know where this is? A clue may be derived from the Feuer Transportation truck in the center of the photo. Feuer Transportation is/was located in Yonkers, New York. The photo is from the 1940's.

Where Is This?

Does anyone recognize this location? It appears to be a quarry of some sort. The sign on the building reads "American Aggregates Corporation." The second line may give a location but it is difficult to read. The photo is from the 1940's.

Thanks to Mike, Mikem and Anonymous for their contributions in identifying the quarry as being located in Oxford, Michigan. The quarry still exists today and is used for gravel mining. At one time, Oxford billed itself as “The Gravel Capital Of The World.”

What Kind Of Airplane Is This?

Does anyone know what kind of airplane this is? I'm sure that it is probably a Cessna or a Piper Cub but would like to know for sure. The photo is from the 1960's.

Thanks to Mikem for identifying the airplane as a Cessna. Most likely a model 182 or 206.

July 4th

The flag, a roaring cannon and an old fort. How patriotic! The photo was taken in the 1960's at Fort Wayne in Detroit, Michigan. Fort Wayne was built in the 1840's and still stands today!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
