Guess where this historical photo of Port Jefferson was taken.

Courtesy of the historical photo archive on Port Jefferson's official website, this photo takes you up the road a spell from back in the day. Take a guess in the comments where this historic photo of Port Jefferson was taken. We will post your image here if you can provide us with a modern photo taken from the same perspective. (No cheating by calling . Additionally, Ken Brady is disqualified from this contest, .)

It is just north of the LIRR tracks in the vicinity of Perry Street looking north by north west.

Hasn't changed much, has it ?

Phorto probably taken around 1959 or 1960, since the newset vehicle shown is a 1959 Ford at the far left. Mc Ewing Bros. Hardware is in the right foreground on the north corner of Main St and Perry St.

You can see the diner , featured in todays Patch. Its closed now. Its name then was State Diner , from what I can see from that angle.
