Derby Line, VT, at the Canadian border



Replaced by the brick building in 1932

Been thru Derby Line a few times. Last was probably late 70's. Thanks for the memory

Everything seems to be one story shorter, what is up with that?

Soft ground and poor footing installation so now they are the only street with a two story basements! :-)

I think the only building that is the same in the old and new pictures is the church.

Chris,

Great photo. I suspect the T shown below from the photo is a Canadian produced 1920-1923 as it is a low cowl, one-man top with the oval windows. The oval windows could be added as a replacement back panel or new top on a USA car.

But the windshield also appears to have a movable bottom section. In the USA cars only the top pane of glass could be opened on the slant windshield 1923-1925 cars, but on the Canadian 1920-1925 cars both the top and the bottom part of the windshield could be opened.



Compared to the photo Jay posted at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/581650.html?1445791721 showing a 1920-23 Canadian touring with the oval rear windows, slant windshield where both panes of glass can be opened:



Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Also, Hap's photo above shows the curvature in the Coupe body very well. there are very few straight, flat surfaces there.
