Main Street at Night, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Continuing with night views of Oklahoma City, this one features the nearby Main Street business district as it looks during the evening business hours. The buildings appear brilliantly lit because of the long exposure time, as revealed by the car headlights in the lower right.

Park Avenue, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

This postcard begins a week of views in the eponymous capital of Oklahoma. This particular view of Park Avenue shows the park and fountains and the three and a half block length of the road. Crossing just past the fountains is Latting Circle. It appears from the more current photo that there has been a clock installed at the edge of the fountain in more recent years.
