November, 1937 - Staten Island - what's parked along the curb?

Here is a cropped view, appears as if the radiator was covered with a blanket.  The headlight tie-bar has a rectangular emblem which suggest Cadillac or LaSalle.  I'd opine the latter, a 1929 Fisher-bodied sedan.

I like the idea of it being a LaSalle, but have a question - wouldn't it have fender mounted lights instead of cowl lights?

True, 1929 would have fender mounted lights but 1927-'28 have cowl lights.  Buicks had a square emblem on the headlight tie-bar too but its too indistinct to be sure.

Great photograph but on my screen the next car is about the size of a small postage stamp and the following even smaller - is this also an eye exam to test our ability to see? 🤩

I like the houses the cars are all parked in front of.  Beautiful, opulent architecture giving each house individual character.  

 

I hope the neighborhood those homes are in stayed nice, or the land values didn't escalate so high they got torn down for overpriced condos.

Double bar bumpers, TWO headlight tie bars (one with the V-8 emblems and one supporting the license plate), visor (transparent) over windshield, and cowl lights. 

1928 Cadillac 341A

 

Edit: looks like its missing the running board tool boxes and a tie bar from the bumper. 

New guess 1928 La Salle
