Here are some more photos from my father's collection... Follow the thumbnails and discover a lost world...
|This appears to have been taken during a Fourth of July parade... I'm not sure what kind of car it is...|
|This is sort of amusing... This guy is truly roughing it on either a camping trip, or a cross-country journey... Remember, in those days, hotels weren't easy to come by outside of cities...|
|It appears this photo was taken in perhaps New Mexico, Arizona, or maybe even west Texas... Any ideas? And, what kind of car is it?|
|I'm going out on a limb here, but this almost appears to have been shot in Forest Park, in St. Louis.... The car could be a 1927 Chevrolet...? UPDATE: 06 DEC 2004: Huff Report reader, Dave King, wrote recently, and I have included his comments as a footnote ***|
|Men's fashions haven't changed much over the years, but, as for the ladies, well....|
|Dig that hat... What kind of car is this? The grill shell almost looks like a Rolls, but I'm going to guess it's an early 1920s Moon...|
|Somewhere west of Laramie...|
|Here's an aircooled Franklin... OK, I'll admit, this is a reprint, and is NOT an original period photo... Still, I thought it was pretty cool....|
|Some dude outside a gas station... People didn't really know how to pose for photos back then, did they?|
|This is VERY cool.... It's a huge limo, but what kind??? A Marmon perhaps?|
|Another neat pic... This one is a laundry truck for Mid West Laundries...|
|Check out that hat... Is this a Buick?|
|Name that car.... I'm guessing it's a Dodge....Check out the coal advertisement in the background....|
|Awesome Packard police car for the city of St. Louis..... What series is it?|
|A family enjoys a picnic...|
|These guys appear to be having fun...|
|This is a photo of my grandfather, as a very young man, sitting in his Model T with his cousin...|
|This poor guy is pumping up a flat tire.... Flats were VERY common in those days....|
*** Your picture that “appears to be a 1927 Chevrolet” is a 1926 - although I have not seen that roof style before (the landau schools). The 27 has domed headlights where the 26 are flat at the back. The radiator shell is different too. The 27 had a peak in the upper center whereas the 26 is rounded. The 26 also had a steel radiator whereas the 27 had aluminum (except for commercials). Hope I am not being pedantic. So you can say it is definitely a 26.
