Now if we could get someone with a similar car or something like it to give kids this age a ride like shown here it would etch a great time in their minds forever. I taught 1,100 kids per week that age 5 1/2 days a week for nearly 40 years and they indeed are impressionable and remember the good things in life. GREAT PHOTO, thanks Alan.

Arrow Transfer still very much alive in Vancouver BC. Photo taken June 14, 1935 by Stuart Thompson, the same person who photographed the Doane lowloader photos seen earlier on this topic.

The lower photo is a Packard-Kegresse that I the Russian royal house ordered in 1917. Perhaps they didn't own it for long? There are other photos if out there.

A better view of a QCMC banner that is on the '08 Packard in Alan's photo.

I wonder at what speed the woman's hat either strangled her or it blew off.

1908_Spyker_30-42_HP_tourer.jpg

 

Having spent some time trying to work out where I had seen this photo before and what the car was, I noticed that by clicking on the photo it comes up with a caption - 1908 Spyker 30-42 hp.

 

An acquaintance here in NZ has a smaller car, a 15-22,  from 1907.

Bob, thanks for the link to the QCMC overview. As I believe you know, the previous post of the 1908 Packard with the QCMC pennant shows the driver, P.D. Folwell, who was president of the QCMC in 1908 when the club sponsored the first of the Fairmount Park races. He was a speaker at the first AACA banquet and hosted the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th AACA meets at his Merion, Pa. house.

I've never seen an early mud & dust deflector on the back of a car before, not sure of the date of this Buick. Bob

Do you know what the make and model of this car and one you posted after it are?

 

Maybe about a 1924 Star....

Grill shell is wrong.

 

They look a lot like early Rickenbackers to me but I can't be sure without a better image.

1914 Pierce-Arrow 38-C-2 7-p touring.  1914 was the only year of a convex curve on headlight ramp until 1932.

Otter Creek (2).jpg

 

 

I don't think Star ever used front fenders of that style either.

The detail and lighting is not great. (Maybe someone with better computer skills than I can improve it slightly?)

It MAY be a Jewett. They did use short sharp-transition front fenders of that style on several models in the early to mid 1920s. They also offered disc wheels in that style, and a few had baby drum headlamps. I am sure not sure (due to the shadows), but even the radiator shell looks close.

Chandler is another car that used that style of fenders. Not all Chandlers had their distinctive rear window.

Those were the days!

 

I wonder if that dealer had just pulled the paper off the window an hour earlier.

No, sorry.  I'd love to know the location which I assume is some where between Danby and Middlebury, VT.

NOAA list for weather reporting purposes Otter Creeks located in Arkansas, Florida, as a Township in Pennsylvania, as Junctions in Indiana and Tennessee.    Might try a Google Street View of each to see if any of the building match the old photo.
