model T's on Market street ?

Not sure when this picture was taken, no date was given..
Supposed to be Market street.. but here again, I'm having a hard time figuring out where about on Market street it's supposed to be ?

LOL, guess those aren't model ts LOL I see the sign there on the right.. Studebaker Commercial Motor Company Inc.. so cool.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is in fact Market Street ?

I just can't get a handle on where this is ?



And this is supposed to be Market street as well.. Looks like maybe the same street only a little further up the way.. and obviously some years earlier ?
still can't figure out where abouts on Market street it's supposed to be?

Yep, you can just see the unmistakable corner of Wray/Dickinson on the right edge of the photo. That means the photo was taken from about the middle of the intersection of Market and Fannin, facing South-East.

Joe you are a very young guy. How do you know these things about old Shreveport and Bossier ? Did you have help or just a sharp eye ? Good post.

That white building on the left looks lot like the old United Merchantile Bank building (original CNB?) but that would be on the other side of the road right? This is looking north right? I guess that is about the spot that Amsouth is located now. BTW, has ML Bath been at that same building all this time? Or is that a different building from their current location?

I'm pretty sure these pictures are looking south on Market.

that tall white building on the left furthest down the street.. is the building where Insty prints is now on the bottom floor.

Insty prints is in the old United Merchantile building. If that's it, then that makes since if the picture is looking south. (but only if ML Bath as moved)

In the first pic the tall building on the right (the one with the penthouse) is the Washington-Youree Hotel (originally called just "The "Youere Hotel", so that pic really is old) which used to be where the parking garage for the LA Tower is now (South corner of Market/Travis) so that is definitely looking SE on Market from about the intersection with Fannin.
