Overland Avenue going north almost to Main Street, Burley, Idaho

Headed North on Overland Avenue approaching Main Street in Burley, Idaho

Another one of those classic postcards I picked up of Burley, Idaho.  I am guessing this one is dated about 1962.  The red car driving away in this picture is a 1961 Chevrolet Impala by the distinct ‘v’ shape in the middle.  The car approaching on the left is unfortunately a 1961 Chrysler.  It is also very distinctive in its styling and you can see it has fins, which Chrysler dropped in 1962.  The white car parked down by Harris Theater looks like it only has two headlights, but upon closer look, you can see the stacked headlights, but I can’t tell the model.

Of course on the left is/was the iconic King’s Variety Store.

You can see the for the Harris Theatre marque.

The massive Idaho Bank & Trust sign on the corner of Overland and Main.

You can see the old mill down by the tracks on the right.

The old Hudson’s Shoes with the blue and white store front on the right.

You cannot read it, but the Thriftway Drug on the right closest corner of Main and Overland.

The other signs I cannot read, but I recognize the buildings.
