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.

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.

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.

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.

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

 

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.

Just trying to resort things in my library/archives and try to get it back to a reasonably functioning place to do research and write stories.  I had a long delay in the past several years due to some health issues and now am realizing how much odd stuff I have - Geez.

Well here is a photo of a Stanford model S two ton stake truck. It was built in Syracuse, N.Y. the town painted on the side of the truck is near Syracuse.

Also a photo of a 1930 Crossley ( English built) 23 h.p. taken at the London Motor Show at their exhibit stand. Car has a fabric covered body.

the last photo is a Derby six built in France.

I have hundreds ( 400 or 500 +) of period photographs taken at the London and Paris Motor Shows pre war , plus a few just immediately post war in the 1946-50 era , some truly bizarre stuff.

Does everyone like the odd stuff or do you need a dose of "normal" " regular" ?

I vote for some more odd stuff, please! Thank you for sharing some spectacular images with us over the past year.
