Ahuza street in Raanana, Circa 1934

 Sunset over Ahuza street in Raanana.
The view is from West facing east.
The white two story building in the center left is in the corner of Maccabi street and Ahuza,
where "Pizza Agvania" is located.

Note the long shadow (of the photographer?) at the bottom of the frame.
This indicates an evning shot (the sun is behind us, in the west).
Following that logic, I went with a "golden hour" color scheem while working on this imige.

The original B&W photo from the collection of the Library of congress.

Another view of Ahuza street where the same barbershop is clearly visible.

A photo of Ahuza street  from east to west where the same ice-cream shop sign for
"Glida mehubar" (גלידה מחובר) is visible

This is the same location as seen from the top of the water tower
behind the "peoples house" בית העם

This is an interesting little detail I noticed:
A picnic bench is located in the middle of Ahuza Street for public use.

The same location today.
