I am guessing from the vehicles that this was taken in the 1940s–but I’m still studying up on my old cars so any help would be appreciated.

    Well, thought I was going to be helpful, but when I googled what I thought I knew, I got schooled. LOL! I am fairly certain the white car parked in front of the mill is a Studebaker, and I thought that would narrow down the year, but turns out Studebakers were made for more than 50 years and final production year was ’67! Not too helpful… The trucks look like ’40s models, however the cars on the highway look like they might be early ’50s. So my guess would be early to mid ’50s when the pic was taken. 🙂
    If anyone has a different opinion, I’d love to hear it. This is definitely an area of expertise for me. LOL!
