Unbelievably vivid. 1927 doesnt seem so long ago when you look at it like that.

That guys left arm is disgusting.
Mike - he's in Texas and has a nifty hood ornament.
Original full size picture has greater detail
Oh, Texas, that explains a lot. I wish I had his little "Kodak".
So they have enough dogs but they need more windshield stickers.
Color film was available in the '20's, being a professional photographer chances are that he had access. Picture taken with a higher quality camera showing depth of field and clarity..... not your every day Kodak.
So was this picture colorized or originaly taken with color film?
I wonder about the headlight rim being brass looking. It is obviously not a 1915.
The print on Shorpy has been digitally tinted.
The original glass negative is black and white and resides in the Library of Congress.
