Default whats wrong with this picture

there is an article in todays Boston Herald newspaper about the
Blizzard of 78 which took place 30 years ago today.

the blizzard of 78 sent us over 2 feet of snow in most places and much much more
in snow drifts as well as wiped out coastal homes in the Boston area.

it put Boston at a standstill for days due to cars and such being stuck on roads everywhere.


Now back to my question. What is wrong with this picture?

South Boston residents, above, shovel out their cars on East 6th Street after the Blizzard of 1978

Quite obvious it isn't 1978. More like 1992.

I didn't sleep last night, so I'm taking my "horrible comment" freebie.

What if that picture were in the 1978 newspaper?

I was just saying it would be really funny if by some weird warping of a space-time continuum, however that may be, that picture would have ended up in the 1978 newspaper. It'* basically because if people are upset over that picture now, I wonder how they would have reacted to it then.

Boston didn't exist in 1978? laughing out loud.


Jimmy, I saw a 2008 Buick Century in that picture? It'* the red one on the left 14th one back. Oh and there is leaves on all the tree'*, plus American'* hadn't invented show shovels till the early 80'*.

Is it just me or are the cars on the wrong side of the street too? Or am I just seeing things funny due to lack of sleep....
