  • Biography
    antique auto hobbyist since 1972; primary interest: early museums.
  1. Does anyone know what became of Smith Hempstone Oliver's archives? Among his photographs were images of James Melton's move of automobiles and "Jumbo" from Norwalk's Melton Museum to Hypoluxo's "Autorama." In the '80's or '90's, by way of photostats, SHO offered to rent the negatives for a sum beyond my means. Oh, the chances we let slip by!!!
  2. Are "cben09" and "1937hd45" still looking for listing of D. Cameron Peck October, 1949, auction? Just stumbled across one. Please advise.
  3. Where did it go after leaving Gene Zimmerman's "Autorama" in Harrisburg, PA?
  4. Where'd all of the pictures go in the first entries? None of the links from R W Burgess worked either! Whazzup?
  5. Nancy: Just stumbled on your request of a few years ago. I hoped I had a the requested shots from our visit to the Bridgewater Museum back in August, 1971. But, alas, only have a smattering, and the Henderson, is not among the slides. (I seem to recall the film in that camera jamming frequently; naturally this would be the moment!) Despite the chicken wire, my compulsive nature would likely have included same, but all I have (that is inclusive) is a list of the cars displayed on that day (including the Hendersons: "1913" and "1916," the latter likely being a 4 cyl. motorcycle. (And to think I spent 4 years in school not more than 15 miles away! The brass era bug had not caught me then!) If the listing would be of interest, can forward same. Has the Fountainhead Museum published hard copy postcards of the e-postcard images on your website? So glad your collection has become the home of some of J. Parker Wickham's beauties. Yet, when I thought them far away at the tip of LOng Island, I had no idea they would ever move that far away! Best regards, Conway in Maine
  6. Mention and some pix of the Binford can be found in the following: 7/51 (XII-3) 10/54 (XV-4) "Bulb Horn"s (with mentions of Schonberg and Garganigo), claiming a Jackson engine (!); and 4/81 & 9/81 "Cars & Parts." Autolit.com on eBay has had a photo of the car ("taken by Henry Austin Clark" at the Former (Goddard) Mohawk Trail Auto Museum in Charlemont, MA) in yellow. The museum also published a a Real Photo card in black and white of the 1905. None of the cards or photos I have are postmarked, so establishing a date of the Goddard Museum ('50's - '60's) is if-y! Last I knew (1990's) the car was in J. Parker Wickham's collection, Eastern Long Island. Hope this helps! Conway PS. There is a website (something about "Earliest Automobiles...." in the web-name, that I think carries another "Binford" image, but it looks nothing like the car for which you have pictures on the AACA Forum.
