Wow!  I never thought that open touring cars would have been transported for days/weeks on open rail cars with no protection from the elements.  They must have been a mess when arriving at the dealerships.

Ed, That Cunningham could be featured in another thread "GOOD LOOKING CARS FROM THE 1920's" if you care to start it. Sorry it is now lost. Great stack of photos you have been posting, sure would be nice to ID the cars and buildings in the back ground. Bob

Bob, I never learned how to properly do computers.......so 99 percent of my photos do not have any notes with them.......

 

I can relate to that. Really like to find someone to explain an !Phone without obscenities'.

The upholstery had been walking around for 2-3 years, I don't see a problem.

The clean up would have been a pain......probably still being hauled by a coal burner. Add in the normal dirt and grime from the rail yards........

Exactly!  That was my point...all elements of open rail freight.  And just because the leather upholstery had been alive at some point in time doesn't make it impervious to damage.  Sewn with waterproof thread?  And how about the primitive electronics?  All of it waterproof?  Those brand new cars weren't brand new anymore.

Am I mistaken or did the last several posts just go completely off topic? would these be better in the Memorabilia a Guide to View?  There are already spark plugs posted there

and the radios ? The one radio that was indeed in the back of the Cunningham sedan should stay with the photo of the car but the others ?????

Anyone else feel the way I do? Title of this thread since it was started in March is
Period photographs"..............................
