Lots of Studebakers (more than expected).

rightmost row - 1st and 8th cars

middle row - 3rd car is a '49

"fast" row - 10th care is a '41 Buick, and 12th car is a '49

 

Great pic - thanks

Nice shot outside LA's Brown Derby restaurant.

At the far left, the 1947/1948 convertible is just starting through the intersection, while the 1952 Roadmaster (Super?) Riviera is blocking the crosswalk where the group of gentlemen are crossing with the light. Have they just completed their three-martini lunch?

Interesting that the '51 Nash, and the 1937(?) Packard managed to stop behind the crosswalk, or is the ;53 running the light?

Great shot !

At first, I thought there were only 2 Buicks, both left-most cars in the nearest row,

but then looking up that row to the right of the '55 Olds, the DeSoto, and the '50/'49 Chevy, appears to be a '47/'48 Buick sedan (although it could be a Caddy?) hard to tell by the way the fender extension goes into the door,

Then beyond the DeSoto, above the black convertible top of the 1954 Cadillac and directly below the giant slipper,

right in front of the entrance to the Parisian Follies of the SILVER SLIPPER GAMBLING HALL, backed in to the space, appears to be the roof of a 1950-1954 Buick, identifiable only as to the placement of the roof-mounted radio antenna.

The Riviera was so far back I almost missed it. 

At one time my wife had been admiring a '59 Ford convertible, recalling her dad's sedan in her teen years

Special for Marty Sharp Eyes. 😄

This could require new glasses, but from the left:

2nd row 14th car looks like a '53 Buick front bumper

Nothing jumping out in 1st row, 

3rd row, 3rd from end may be a '47/'48

but beyond 3rd row and behind tree in front of garages seems to be a '53?

4th row, 3rd car between the Fleetline Chevy and the shoebox Ford looks like a '56 2-door Post sedan behind the '51 Ford

5th row right end is a 1949 Buick

7th row, 5th car is a 1952 Buick

That is as far as I can go - too blurry beyond that,

and thanks for reminding me to schedule with the ophthalmologist as soon as the country reopens 😎

As usual, you found every one I did, plus a few more.

Yup !

 

I think Earl is right.

Mercury had a more curved grille edge, and different trim on the side of the hood.

I'll defer to my elders (and there are fewer of them these days)

Thankfully they have pictures, otherwise can you imagine trying to explain that one to the insurance guy? 🤔

Just another day in a typical Canadian town, I'm sure! 😁
