Looking south on Boston Avenue from East Second Street, Tulsa.

Take the vehicles away and you would never know what year this shot was taken in, if you know what I mean.

I agree with the comment above, the shot could have been taken in the 1950s!

Despite the modern cars parked along the street, I got a distinct impression of the 30s.
Well done!

Outstanding capture. The Atlas Life sign and the prominence of art deco architecture, combined with the sepia tone, really add a sense of nostalgia to this photo. Very nicely done.

That's a great ole timey shot. That stretch of Boston Avenue is my favorite street downtown.

Actually if you took a photograph of this same scene in 1935 about the only thing that would be noticeably different would be the cars. Not a lot has changed. Move over a few blocks and it is a different story.
