  1. That must have been quite the project! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Thank you for the history lessons here. I am learning a great deal!
  3. Wow, so much cool information. My grandparents had a Polish maid named Mary I was told. But she didn't live there. And yes, they must have had a garage for it somewhere as there was only on street parking. Houses you showed not really quite like theirs which had grass in front and was a dark red sandstone. I remember it well!
  4. edinmass - also want to thank you for what you posted. My grandparents lived in a brownstone in Flatbush.....have no idea what it would have cost, but still, to have a car that was possibly more expensive than their huge house? Whew! Here's a photo of their house on what was then Decoration Day 1921.
  5. Holy Cow, John, when you put it like that!!!! And yes, I was aware of what Ford was able to do to get the cost way down. Thanks....
  6. Thank you all so much for this fascinating information about my grandfather's Packard. He and my grandmother were married in 1910 and lived in Brooklyn, NY. The photos of the car that I posted were dated 1914 in my grandmother's handwriting.
  7. Yes, it was a Packard. I can not only see that, but somehow, rising from my memory banks is my dad telling me that! Thanks, Lydia
  8. Dear all of you responding to my question! Thank you so much for all this that I am learning, and things I am getting to chuckle about. LOVE IT. I do have other photos of the car which I can post eventually. So do we think this is a Lincoln? In the photos, it does appear that there is a chauffeur. In the photo with the top off, is my grandmother in a BIG hat! Lydia
  9. I can't imagine what it took to change out the summer/winter parts. Well I guess it was grandpa's toy! Lydia
  10. Hello Joe and thank you! It definitely does look like two different cars until one carefully looks at the front and back of both and see all the same parts! Lydia
  11. Hello John, Being new here, I will have to get with the program. I did post the photos, but apparently they didn't show up?! Down at the bottom of this window it says 'choose files' and that's what I did to get my photos up. I will try again now. Same car in winter and then in summer without the amazing top on it! Lydia
  12. I do not know the make of this car. I remember my father telling me it had a winter cover and that could be taken off for it to become a convertible. Here you see it in both of those ways. I would like to know what the make of it is! Thank you.
