I always prefer to use vintage negatives, photos and slides to show a more accurate view from the streets, but sometimes the only option I have is a postcard. Like this one from the B & B Chevrolet Dealership, in Detroit (MI).

A lot of changes in this area in the last 59 years. The Chevrolet dealership no longer exists and some neighbors buildings as well. In the place of B & B there is one Mc Donald’s restaurant.
Here is the place now from Google Street View
