Please help ID cars in old photo 1920s


Recommended Posts

You have to be careful when using cars to establish a time, unless you mean just a general period...people kept cars longer then (not necessarily the relatively few who could buy new, but the large number who bought used and tended to baby them because it'd be a long time before they'd have the money to buy another, like my mother and father...

I don't have software to blow up pic clearly, but the dress of the people would be another way to establish a relative time...from what I can see they do seem to match the cars in this instance--late 20s, maybe early 30s (remember the Depression slowed car sales considerably)...

I assume you've checked City Directories to establish how long the hotel stayed in business; if it went out of business or had a name change that might help...
