Back When Dallas Men Were Strong

Every now and then, Friend of Unfair Park PeterK passes along vintage Dallas photos for sale on eBay; awful nice of him. Today, this one arrived in the in-box:"Strong Man Pulls Car Dallas Centennial." From '36, in other words. Big Hersch has ID'd the front car as a '36 Ford, and the rear as a '32 Model B. But no idea where the photo was taken -- Deep Ellum maybe?
