  1. I was wondering if that man in the trench coat might be the Number Man getting ready to hold up a number… but then I saw another man farther down the road doing the same thing. Maybe one is waiting at the trolley stop, and the other at a bus stop?

    “It’s also amazing how much has changed between this 1934 photo and the previous 1937 photos of this intersection!”

    Not really. The 1937 photo was taken looking north, while today’s post (1934) is facing south. About the only difference. Maybe a couple of signs are gone, but other than that. looks pretty similar.
