Hehe a horse and wagon in the mix, too.

Isn't that an amazing photo? Prior to traffic lights and more established driving rules and laws, the way traffic moved in the early days of motoring was the way it had been moving for hundreds of years in busy cities, where an intersection was a free-for-all. If you look at film footage from the 1910s and early 1920s of big American cities and the way people drove, it was really no different than the way traffic moves in third world countries today, like in say, Indonesia.

Great photos, by the way, of the Edison Bldg. construction!
