Howard Avenue Looking North – 1920

Today is an old post card that says it is looking north on Howard Avenue. I have driven Howard several times, but I have never been able to locate anything visible in the postcard. Given the corner location and age, I suspect it was either taken at the corner of Gilles or Erie. Either is likely as both corners have been obliterated over the years. Any further south you would run into the cemeteries, and the factory district.

A neat shot all the same, giving us a glimpse of what it was like along Howard Avenue 90 years ago.

Hope everyone had a good weekend, and got enough sleep to make up the lost hour…
