Authentic old street (please read all rules)

Challenge #3 in the variable subjects I series. Hosted by Lext123.
Challenge has finished
Show me a street (or any village or city part) where time has come virtually to a stand a long time ago. Try to create an image that looks as authentic as possible. Modern current objects indicating that the picture was in fact taken recently, may not be visible, and will lead to disqualification. The more authentic objects in the picture, the better. Think of: lamp posts, carriages or old-timer cars, garbage bins of even people dressed in authentic cloughs. Good luck and amaze your fellow challenge contestants.
