Jack Sprat could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean.
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean.

The coupe is a Chevrolet.

What kind of headlights does that car have on it? They look like drum headlights, The rear fenders don't look right for a suicide door car. I wonder if it is a later picture (50's) of a put together car

The car appears to be a 1924 Chevrolet Superior Utility Coupe.

Wife just looked at the picture and thinks it may be from the late '40's or early '50's based on hair style, clothing style and types of fabric. Purse style and construction also suggests '50's. Also, note the house in the background. Low roof pitch, facia boards, narrow eves.

Looks like late fashion 1920s/early 1930s to me - the dress, long baggy sweater and baggy pants look late 1920s to me.

Shorter hair styles such as the "bob" were popular in the 1920s and early 1930s.

Note two towers on the left - oil rigs in Los Angeles? Low pitched roof lines and fascia boards are common on 1920s southern California bungalows.

would that be the dealers advertising on the spare tire cover?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erik Johnson on Sunday, January 22, 2017 - 01:53 am:

Could be anything painted or silk-screened on the tire cover.

Last word looks like "Songbird."

They might both fit in that little coupe. Good pic. Tim

Yes, the dress says late twenties. The combination of palm fronds, oil derricks, and eucalyptus trees says southern California.

She's not calorically challenged, she's calorically overloaded! (My bad) Probably was a very sweet girl.

WHOA GUYS!!!
I am Peter's wife and I usually enjoy reading threads on this forum but I think some of these personal comments are a little over the line.
This lady might still be with us and reading this thread

She would be about 107 years old if she was still alive. Also, remember the old Irish saying: "Nobody's sweetheart is ugly."

Amend Rick.

I like that quote Rick. Very good.

I have a longtime friend who has a stupid reputation for chasing high
maintenance trophy women. After 3 very expensive divorces and a lot
of grief, he "adjusted" his sights to women that might lack a certain
"flash", but are rich in their sense of practicality. After 35 years of con-
versations between our mutual friends regarding his self-made hell, it
was plenty amusing to have HIM tell me how those high falootin' types
were not worth the headaches. He has been married to his current wife
for a while now and he says the lack of drama makes him think this will
carry him through to the end.

Touché. :-)

Burger,

A comedian the other day said he had a trophy wife, but that the trophy was not for first place. Is that kinda what you're getting at?

I guess it could read that way. One of my clients is an interior designer.
The work I do for her takes me to some absurdly overdone homes, where
$10,000 light fixtures are changed out every few years "just to update".
The female clients that live in these houses are spending someone else's
money (husband) and while way above par for being visually appealing, it
is obvious that keeping a woman like that comes with whole different set
of costs and complications than anything I know in MY life (or would tolerate).

Just not worth the hassle and expense.

Speaking of judging a woman's looks on a scale of 1 to 10. The urban dictionary says A 'Jewish 10' is a 2 ......... with 8 million Dollars. :-)

She's just "pleasingly plump"; the more to love.

Give the poor lady a break! My sister broke her leg as a girl and the break was such that she couldn't put any weight on it, no walking cast or even crutches. She had to sit or lie down all day and was home schooled for a couple months until it healed. During that time she gained a lot of weight. Later she lost it and became a beautiful young lady. Something similar could have happened to the lady in the picture.

I saw 100 women just today that could have had something like that
happen to them .... except they were still hefty and up and around and
walking.

There will always be exceptions, but in the main, being overweight is a
personal discipline issue, and those with personal discipline issues would
most often rather have a hurt feeling than deal with their own lack of discipline.

The Gunny would have none of that nonsense.
