    ⇧ Fun post - thank you. 2 tone cars at 3:30 (and a few other times), any idea what they are doing up on the roof at 9:28?

    During the course of it^^, I was trying to decide if the music was influencing my feelings about what I was looking at, one way or another.

    Also, the picture of the kids on the roof made me think that today their parents would be arrested for allowing that.

    Looks like they're having a little roof party. They even brought the blanket.
    There's one below the rest of the group with a pillow.
    It may seem strange, but my cousins and I did stuff like that.

    Another one from the same source. I really enjoy these, but I really wish they would find some new music.

    In the 1950s Street Scenes video, at about 2:25 they view Canal St., New Orleans, in 1955. I think it was taken from Chartres/Camp Street intersection with Canal, looking away from the river. Interesting to see that the "No Left Turn" signs were there even then.

    Not sure if these images are Kodachcrome
    or Ektachrome from those times.

    LM may provide more details!

    I use to climb up on our roof, using the TV antenna tower, to watch fireworks on July 4 from the surrounding area.
