Jay that looks to be a very rare photo. Can't tell much about the lady in the car (obscured by the windshield) but the Driver seems to be a black man. My father told me there were many black families in the 20's that had money and as a whole they tried to hide their wealth. It would be nice if more of the old photos had info on the back but mom says people just put them in photo albums and said I'll never forget these people. Great picture
About 2 weeks ago my cousin and I went through a bunch of old photos left by our grandmother. Many were absent any notation, but some did have a little information. One in particular got us to laughing pretty hard. It was a photo of a young man we don't recognize standing at the opening of a cave. The notation on the back says, "Taken in front of a cave."
Someone did quite the pruning job on that tree poking up above
the passenger side windshield upright !
The car is clean and shiny, smooth white tires, looks fresh and new with electrified headlamps! Nice 1912 torpedo roadster. Fantastic photo.
Thank you Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Not only is this a great photo of the car but the neighborhood must be fairly new too. The street is spotless and all the houses are very neat and clean as well as the yards. Concrete curbs and roads.
This is really interesting. There is a 1912 Torpedo, currently on display at the Ford Piquette Plant, that has those exact same headlamp conversions. It also has the remnants of nickel plate on all the brass. The way the radiator shines in this photo makes me wonder if it too was nickel plated. Same car???
Years ago I was looking at old photos with my mom. I told her she should wright on the back who the people are. Her response was, why? I know who they are. She passed away last May and guess what? We don,t know who they are.
