Looks like a rather quaint junction in 1963. Not these days, however. Get caught here during rush hour and you're playing Russian roulette with the cars in four other lanes as you all try to trust in one another that everyone is up to speed on their stop sign etiquette. There's a fairly strong giveaway over in the back left of the photo, if you need some help. Any idea what road this photo was taken from?
