The gentleman in the family portrait looks like Jerome Cavanaugh, Mayor of Detroit, my former boss back in the 60's.

The 2nd is a 1966 Chevy Impala - on a brick street.

My street, Virginia Park, is brick, Karl. You should feel free to come bottom your car out on the part between 2nd and Third. The section between 2nd and Woodward is in pretty good shape, though, considering its age and all.

The bottom picture is of Robert McNamara and his family, probably around when he was CEO of Ford (I think).

That is not the Production Line. The player in the middle looks like Alex Delvecchio. Gordie is not in that picture, neither is Lindsey or Abel.

Danny posted these, so you need to put your answers in the correct form:
Tarkus, you mean KING Alex Delvecchio. And Rugbyman, you mean LONG LIVE KING Robert McNamara.

That's not Delvecchio. Delvecchio was number 10. My grandpa's favorite hockey player of all time. He also would have the captain's C on his Jersey.

I know that, but was there an original production line I wonder?? My first trips to the Olympia were in the early 70's. That photo predates my personal knowledge by 20 years or more!

Danny, here's my aunt in front of the family home at 1301 Virginia Park, c. 1927. Anything look familiar?

Why is that Impala on the left side of the street? Was Virginia Park formerly a one-way street, was the negative flipped, or is it just illegally parked?

Ray1936, great picture. I love that flower pot on the right. That's a nice house behind the girl.

I went by that house two years ago, Milwaukee; the flower pots (one on each side of the porch) are still there.
