I'm sure there is, and I see a couple of poor ol' horses "hanging in there" for posterity!
Nice pic again Herb!

Yes, Jeff Ford is in the second row fourth guy from the right, just behind the color guard.

And I thought it was some kind of a race, looking at the guy with a number 7 on his back in the lower right.
Silly Me...

Yes, Battle Creek is my home town and this photo was taken at Ft Custer. Quite a car show. I first got into old cars there in Battle creek when walking home from school one day. Took a short-cut and noted a garage open, saw the rear end of a 1909 Cadillac sticking out with a guy under it doing some work. Got the garage tour and first heard stories about Hershey there.

It is a nice photo.
I am surprised no one mentioned the days when we sent our 25 cents and two box tops to Battle Creek. Then anxiously waited for our Rin Tin Tin binoculars or Voodoo mask or some other wonderful item to arrive.
That is where my mind first went.

Richard,

I still remember my Tom Corbett Space Cadet ray gun that shot puffs of powder. And the little submarine that would rise and submerge in the sink.

I spent three days in Ft. Custer in January, 1953 when I was separated from active duty to the Ready Reserves after serving in the US Army in Germany. I was the Company Clerk for Company H of the 109th Infantry of the 28th Division.
