I have been around model t,s for a while... but mine has a radiator...and very little plumbing.. and no heating... How does that garage think they will make a living like that.???? Or maybe the sign should say... Plumbing and Overheating....Just saying??
What's hanging on the top boot? Notice the lip on the front fenders.
Pasco Garage, and in the same building, Powell Plumbing and Heating.
I don't think that anything is hanging from the top boot and the front fenders have no lip.
There is a tree hanging off the top boot !
It was nothing unusual for service businesses back in the day to cover multiple specialties.
Both plumbing and electrical were pretty new things for the home and most work was being
done retrofit. Then along comes these motorized vehicles, and Harry says to Orville, "I think
we might stand to broaden our business by picking up some work in these horseless carriages.
... just add it to the sign !"
Driving with the top down on a very cool day (maybe winter no leaves on the trees) Back when men were men.
It does look like there's something hanging down where the hood meets the body. Maybe a quirk of a very old camera?
Also, I'm sure this is a complete noob question, but what's that on the running board?
Acetylene generator for the headlights.
Looks like Powell had a falling out with his business partner. There used to be something else painted on the building after "POWELL". Doesn't seem to quite fit to be "& Son". I was wondering if Pasco was derived from Powell And Son Company, but I'm just making things up now!
It appears that this Model T has a chauffeur and a rather prosperous-looking passenger. Kinda unusual for an inexpensive car such as a T.
Yes it is a chauffeur. The gent in the back is one of the plumbers. I'm a plumber, too, and I have a chauffeur for my work vehicle, too! ;)
Looks like the sign may have read "Powell IND".
