Downtown Forest City, ca. 1925

Downtown Forest City. The cars tell a story. Cars started out being open topped. About 1916 came the advent of hard topped autos, but they were very expensive and few people could afford them. This image displays the transition-- some hard and others canvas tops. ca. 1925
