Circa 1955

I went out and about today and took some photos in Selma, North Carolina, USA. I stopped by the side of the road and took a photo of an old sign(first photo). When I got home I found a picture of an old postcard from 1955 that shows the same place(second photo) as it looked in 1955. The postcard is a view opposite my photo. I was standing on the far side of the circle drive when I took the photo. Also are a couple of other photos from Selma.

Thanks for looking

Great for history buffs and for those who aren't sure what small town America is like.

An interesting series to be sure. Time does fly as you have shown in your wonderfully contrasting scenes. The bench scene and the colorful facades strike a chord with me.

Great! I would love to see a tight close-up of that sign though. It would be worth shooting again.

Yes, small town America, lots of farming around Selma.

Thanks. I liked the benches too. I sat down there quite a while as it was a very nice day, mid 60's and sunny.

Yes, I will go back once the vegetation dies a little. There is a smaller sign at the other end of the property and I did see some of what looked like part of a brick wall. I would love to get in around there with a metal detector, no telling what you could find.

Nice series, my favourite is the second last with three wooden benches, and the postcard (LOL, I was born 1955)
