I am sure you have all seen this pic at one time, It was taken about 3 miles down the road from where I live, In Norway Michigan. This picture was first published in the City of Norway Mich. Diamond Jubilee book in 1966. I had submitted to the Model T Times magazine back in about 1980. The second pic was taken up the road in Iron Mountain, Mich. Photography Studio.
Guy, very cool photos. Are any of them buildings still around. Heading up to Pembine tomorrow.
Kevin, The auto garage burnt down many many years ago
In the first photo looks they are using a wheel barrow for a speed jack, COOL
I really enjoy seeing the first one again. Here are a couple discussions of it:
Thanks for bringing it up.
I assume these are two very early 09's, as per the no-bill front fenders. Notice the front car has lower position door handles. Got to wonder whether the ripped top was part of the episode that lead to this car being disabled?
I think the ripped top is actually some guys hat. Lots of mystery in these photos.
Richard, I did see that with the Iron Mountain 1915 on it before, I don't know how that came to be. But the one I posted is directly scanned out of the Norway Jubilee book. I have seen the original of the photo at the Jake Menghini Museum in Norway, MI.
Either way, yes, still a great T pic
Yes, and the caption under your photo is good information to have.
Moved to Norway area about 1 1/2 years (need to update
Profile from MN). Have family ties to area. Those are great
Photos I wonder where exactly they were located? Have a
T and several A’s. We will have to meet sometime. Also
Have your book Camping in Cloverland, really enjoyed it.
I suspect that the hat tucked into the top of the towed car belongs to the fellow operating the wheelbarrow. It appears that he had to stash it somewhere as there was insufficient clearance between his head and the lower most top bow.
