As soon as the picture came up, I KNEW I would scroll just a bit and see Charley S telling me it was an Overland!
Its all good.
car looks new, was it normal for new cars to come with out a spare tire?
Ford pick-ups didn't include a spare tire and rear bumper into the 1960's at least, maybe a little later.
You guys remember Bardon (sp?) Bumpers?
It was normal for cheaper standard cars, tires were relatively expensive in the 20's. Here's a photo of a new Fordor at the dealer back in the day:
Also note the perfect shine in the new paint (that unfortunately didn't last many months..)
Okay, but what's with the "Danger" post in front? I don't see any kind of "garage door" for cars to pass through, unless they just happen to be able to squeeze out the front door. Or is it from things maybe falling from above? LOL. Some kind of traffic warning device with respect to the "median" curb? Sooo many questions.....
Tim, it looks to be attached to the bench not the far curb. Possibly a trolley stop?
Oh for Pete's sake! Gary, you're right!! LOL..dang, I better get my eyes checked. Bet I looked at least 3 times at this pic and didn't notice it. I agree, drawing attention to the seat for the stop. Whew. Now I feel so much better!
Such an interesting photo! Keep'em coming Jay!
Jay's photo is of the William L. Hughson Company located at 1101 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco.
Boy, that is one SOLID-looking bench! Also looks very uncomfortable! Guess one doesn't have to wait sitting on it long.
Really cool photo; lots of activity.
Don't look it up on Google Maps if you don't want your day ruined.
There is some interesting information on the "Van Ness Auto Row" located here:
