Thank you, John for sharing this picture.

 

Having toured for a dozen years, and then restored and showed our 1934 Buick 34-57 all the way to Grand National Senior status, the '34 Buick is among my favorites - even better as this 34-56C or 34-66C Series convertible coupe

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was a national treasure, especially in my Dad's eyes for having visited his 6th Special USN SeaBee Battalion in the South Pacific during WWII.

Additionally, this photo is even more interesting to me since I attended the University of Kentucky back in the early 1960s.

A 31 Mercedes 370 six cylinder.  I never understood why Mercedes did that with the side window and wrecked an otherwise very attractive car.

That is Malcolm Campbell. Donald's father. Donald was only 10 in 1931.

The truck is a De Dion-Bouton - not sure of the year though but maybe WW1 era. This one is a bus.

1937 Vienna Auto show, Tatras are now assembled in Austria. I doubt though that's the case with the Type 77, they were probably imported. The smaller front-engined Type 57A was also made in Germany as Röhr Junior and a little bit later as Stoewer Greif Junior
