Ada in the Roaring '20s


Remember angled parking on Main Street? Probably not. Based upon an examination of the Model Ts and other vehicles in this photo, we place it somewhere between 1922 and 1928. 

This is a colorized post card.

The photo is taken on the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks looking north. Notice the Midway Restaurant on the west side of the street. Also notice the railroad crossing bars and mail box on the east side of the street. 

The Methodist Church steeple peeks above the skyline on the west side and the flag pole - well, exactly how tall was it?

We can't tell if the road is bricked or paved.

Viewers with other observations are encouraged to comment.
