It's Rosh Hashanah tomorrow- will you be going to Temple?
...don't forget your dried apples!
That looks a lot like the Palace of Fine arts in San Francisco. . . ???
Tis, but it looks like a temple doesn't it?
Funny, it doesn't look Jewish.
Well I didn't think anyone would recognize my local house of worship...
A bit off-topic, but the Palace of Fine Arts was built as a paper-mache building for the 1915 Exposition. It was so well-liked that a distant relative developed a system to replicate it in Concrete, to become a permanent structure. At least that is what I was told when I was a small kid.
So Tim, were you out this way when the pic was taken?
It was recreated, as you describe, in 1964.
It is somewhat unknown, that Ford Motor Co. had a small assembly line at the exposition in 1915. What I've never been able to find out is if the cars assembled there had any kind of plate or identification on them, and what the total production was.
Larry S, I can't say for certain, but I don't think they had any special plates. When I was just a kid in this hobby, one of the first clubs I joined had a member that owned a '15 (runabout if I recall correctly) that had been assembled at that exposition. I don't recall if it had been a family car or not? But he had the paperwork from the show, along with the purchase receipts showing the car's serial numbers and other documentation that had come with the car. He often displayed the paperwork in a nice frame when the car was being displayed. As I recall, without the known history, and the paperwork, it was like any other '15 T.
It was one of those cars that the entire club was proud of and often bragged about.
I met the fellow a couple times, but never really knew him (it was over 45 years ago, and I was just a kid getting into the hobby). I have no idea where the car went.
