Kent Avenue and Austin, Nichols

Still from "Pickup on South Street"
(Via: I'm Not Sayin')

I'm Not Sayin' just posted this fantastic picture of Kent Avenue from the 1953 movie Pickup on South Street. The view is looking south from just past North 6th Street towards the (un)landmark Austin, Nichols & Co. Warehouse. The former cooperage, still standing on Kent between North 4th and North 5th, is visible on the left center of the photo.

And to answer INSIJS's question, George's Restaurant on the left appears to be in the building that now houses a marble works, two buildings north of North 6th Street. The brick building to the right (north of ANCW) was demolished some time ago, replaced by the corrugated shacks that served the Nekboh waste transfer station.
