The cyclecar with two girls looks like a Car-Nation. The HCCA roster lists one surviving example.

Colorizing the old pictures does bring them to life. They look like many of the old post cards I have. The fellow in the back seat of the first picture could be W.C. Fields brother!

I do like these colorized images.

The car in the first picture is a Fordor, not a Centerdoor. Note the three door hinges on the edge of the "A" pillar.

The 4th pic is Alice Huling Ramsey and her Maxwell. First woman to drive across this country. The American Underslung is my All-Time favorite car; Model K Ford like Robís is a close second (and more affordable) reality for me.
