During a recent family gathering, around the holidays, we had collected old family photos, which were sorted and brought out to the table. We all sat around, with the photos and exchanged notes and memories. We were kindled by pictures, depicting old faces, places and things. One group of photos that immediately got my attention, were the images of an old car. Among the faces of the people in, on and smothering the car, were those of my Aunt Carol and Uncle Frank. Most of the people were unrecognizeable to me, but I knew the car just might be a Chalmers.
There were at least a couple of decent photos of the car, so I asked my sister if I could borrow them for further investigation. She agreed, and after some research, this is what I came up with:
The old "Family Car", turned out to be a 1915 Chalmers Model 26-B, Five Passenger Touring Car, whose serial numbers ranged from 41701 to 44999.
