The uber wealthy Gillies family at their summer home in Carleton Place, Ontario, on the banks of the Mississippi River (no not THAT Mississippi River- this one flows north into the Ottawa River.)
This picture nicely shows the steadily upward progression of their automobile purchases when they had them all out in the side yard for a wash.
a 1910-'11 Ford,
a 1912 Overland and a 1914 Packard
The caption reads "Packard cars on lawn of 191 Maclaren st. at Carleton Place. Ca. 1912."
the red brick house still stands at the end of Maclaren -along with a matching carriage house/garage- but there are many more trees!
does it not look like the occupants of the cars just left the scene necked as jaybirds? Looks like clothes everywhere!
picture of Elsie Gillies in the 1914 Packard taken at that time

Apparently the Ford had better things to do.....
