I believe the cars parked in the street are Buicks. But the cars behind them on the sidewalk, with the cyclops headlamps in the middle of the radiator shells, are 1915 Briscoes. Very rare, and not particularly good, cars with papier-mâché bodies. I wonder what the little cycle-car in back is?
And what is that car up front on the right? It certainly looks like this pic I posted earlier today.
i think if you blow up the pic you will see a olds hub cap on the frt car. charley
Anyone got an idea what the "sign" is out on the pole ? Looks like a series of
photographs. Several look like photos of people.
The car on the right of the first photo is a 1915 Cadillac. Lots of brand new 1915 cars. Any idea where it was taken?
Burger, the sign looks to me like it has individually framed letters which spell "GARAGE." It also looks like the painted letters have bled through quite a bit from the other side, so perhaps the sign is some sort of porous fabric.
"Hey boys...When your done with that packing crate just throw it over in the neighbors yard!"
dont look like a cad hub cap to me?? charley
I think Tim is right about the pole sign saying G A R A G E. My guess is that the letters are painted in a variety of colors that don't all contrast well in a black & white photo.
Ah, yes ... now it looks obvious. Thanks for adjusting my eyes.
The car in the building could be a White touring but not clear enough to be sure. The windshield makes it several years older than the other cars.
What kind of tires are on the rear of the photo that Dave posted?. Looks like the ribs are integral to the tire.
James B, Those are probably tire chains on the rear of that second photo. Chains were used more for mud than they were for snow in those days.
Lots of neat cars in these photos!
Thank you all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
