I think the missouri river is a good guess, most of what I perceive to be along the mississippi and ohio rivers would tend to have a bit more elevation than this shows. I imagine the great plains stretching just out of view here.

It looks like either Morning Call or Cafe du Monde, in New Orleans. No, I take that back. Neither could be right on the river, but the big buliding in the distance does look like the International Trade Center.

And, by the way, the pictures don't have to come from your personal collection. None of mine have, though I have been to most of those places.
Yeah I know, It's just a lot easier picking somewhere you have been. I know more info than if I pick some random place.

The picture actually isn't mine but I have the exact same picture on my computer at home.

Yeah, I was thinking New Orleans could be a possibility too, but i don't remember that wooden boardwalk...and it seems so clean.

Actually, now that I think about it, I don't think it can be anywhere below St. Louis on the Mississippi, everywhere would be protected by a levee between the river and any town. And anywhere above St. Louis would have high bluffs along the river in the background. The Ohio River is almost all hilly in the distance. Generally, railroads own and use riverbank property, which would preclude a restaurant right on the river. Hard to think of a city big enough to have a 10-story building on the riverfront.

Looks like California fan palms, palms don't usually grow that tall in the southeast. So I'd say Los Angeles.
