This is the first time I've seen this ad. The image bears a striking resemblance to East View, looking west (rr direction), doesn't it?

And yet it wasn't until 1981 that we saw Staggers!

Thanks for that post. I thought when I was looking at the photo: somebody somewhere knows exactly where that is.

Sometimes it seems that things have to get worse before they get better--and they certainly did in that case.

I agree, this is East View, NY, on the Putnam Division. Neat. :-)
