Can anyone make out what it says on the three wheeled motor cycle being towed by the 55 Buick convertible?  

 

Can't make it out - definitely a different servicar to the one on the previous page which reads Forrest? Cadillac.

 

By the number of British cars in this street scene I am guessing it may be in Canada. I see Austins, Vanguards, Vauxhall and even a dreaded Triumph Mayflower with a couple of continental makes as well - VW and maybe a Simca.

With the cobblestone street, if it’s in Canada, it would have to be down east.  There were never very many British cars out west anyway.  Unless Texaco perhaps existed in the Caribbean?  That could be another possibility.  Left hand drive cars....

 

Interesting old photo regardless.

Sturart you are correct.

Picture of the intersection of Davenport + Dupont in Toronto Ontario.

At left corner is a Steakhouse restaurant.

Can't make it out either, but the car is a 1957 Buick convertible.;)

Drove a 2019 Regal today and a 2019 Cascada and a 2019 Corvette Grand Sport, thanks GM, for inviting the retirees to play with new stuff!

Not sure but this might be the first time that I have seen a green soft top.

No No, if you are going to judge at Pebble Beach it's a BLUE jacket and WHITE Buick!

Hey hey, my my.  Neil Young’s Chrome Dreams tour bus. Neil’s first car was a 48 Roadmaster so I suppose it only fitting he should have one or two fitted to his tour bus.
