Absolutely incredible! Brought back some warm memories. As I viewed it, I could even "see" the people.

Thanks.

Absolutely the best I have ever seen. And yes it did bring back memories. My dad worked for Borden's in LIC, and had a Ford very much like the one in the photo next to the Borden's truck. I have been doing miniature settings for about 30 years,but this was really impressive. Thanks

Boy, he did a great job with those photos. The one that captured me was the DIVCO milk truck (Bordens). My dad used to work for Twin Pines here in MI back in the day. I remember getting up at 3:00 in the morning with him to go load up at the dairy and then spend the day delivering milk. That sure was a great time. I'd sure like to find a truck to restore but I'm sure they're far and few. Thanks for sharing, that was great.

That's amazing. When I was a kid, it was all I could do to put a 1/25 scale AMT model car together that looked anywhere near right, and it was nowhere that true to the original, never mind the buildings, trees, streets, etc. Too bad there's not a town like that to go and visit - good memories!!

Being an old car nut, I really enjoyed it too. The 58 Plymouth hard top stole my heart.

Amazin detail! Had see only a few snap shots of that a couple of years ago, so thanks for the posting. That' on a level with Madurdam which I saw in Amsterdam years ago. Late last winter, while being drug around to garage sales by DW, we stumbled onto a guy here in Vegas who had an outdoor set-up based upon scale model trains using roughly that era of time (don't remember which scale) that circled the entire perimeter of his large back yard. Except for the train pieces, he cleaned it with a garden hose and/or a yard blower as the pieces were glued in place. Ended up spending a couple of hours there just looking and talking with him.

Pretty cool, alright, except...
The lack of people kind of creeped me out-ALSO because of old memories!
Almost at once, I remembered a certain Twilight Zone episode!

And when I got to the pic with his hand in it...........

Remember these moments from "Stopover in a Quiet Town"?

Scared the heck out of me when I was a kid!

Same here as I too was just a kid and the other one that got me was the one called Little Pepple, especially the ending scean where a rocket was landing that mad the "villian" the little person.
