Default Nice Pic

The 'Mashable' Retronaut page had a nice pic taken in 1930. The caption reads - 'An overhead view of people on 36th St. between 8th and 9th Aves., New York. Manhattan’s Garment District has been the center of the American fashion industry since at least the turn of the twentieth century - in 1900, New York City’s garment trade was its largest industry by a factor of three. The entire fashion ecosystem, from fabric suppliers to designer showrooms, exists within an area just under a square mile. Native New Yorker Margaret Bourke-White was in her mid-twenties when she took this picture. She would later become Life magazine’s first female photojournalist and, during WWII, the first female war correspondent. The two cars shown are a 1930 Ford Model A 4-Door Sedan, left, and a Ford Model A Sports Coupe, right.' Page URL is http://mashable.com/2017/10/15/the-p.../#PX1y.LXFvOqT

The visors could just about be hiding them.

The sedan sure isn't an A. Its top is to square and totally fabric covered. It is a neat picture though and in color.

Agreed - a 1929 Chev. The panel in front of the radiator is he give away.

Same here. The square shape of the rear corners does not strike me as a Ford trait.
