I didn't take the shot, but here is a pix from a friends dad. It's the Kennett square sometime in the early? 40's.
Anyone able to identify the year? Notice the courthouse has a fence around it, and there is a car lot behind the post office?

I have the shot up at www.flickr.com/chuckyone
it's a lot bigger there, apparently flickr doesn't allow a full size image to be posted.

The court house, if I remember right, was part of the New Deal policy put into place by Rooselvelt in 1935. WPA basically privded labor for people without jobs during the Depression. You can usually tell from the brick if it is a WPA building, and if remember right, it does have the same brick that many of the post offices and libraries have in that area, which I know for a fact are WPA. That was started in 1935, so the pic had to have been taken after that date if it in fact is WPA, which I believe that it is. So the pic was probably taken between 1935-1945, because after this time we pulled out of the depression and WPA kinda faded out. That's a little vague I know, but hope it helps.
