    Well Huntsville Planing Mill is still there and I think I bought stuff from them in 1989. I can’t remember when they tore it down.
    Picture is not clear enough to see what cars look like.
    Looks like Main Street has been paved recently in this picture as it is darker.
    I’m guessing maybe in the 70’s????
