Possibly late 1924/early 1925 Buick Model 45A Using 1924 style top (Enclosed Touring) permanent top and glass curtains. Runningboard kick plates are 1923-1924 style. Looks to be balloon tires which would be 22" for 1925.

Did that in 2015, although of course in a modern it is a piece of cake. There were times the fog was thick enough you could not see past the front of the hood.


Fall River ridge in Colorado back in 1978 was more of a mission, especially in a 'sea level' car.

Enlarging the image of this unknown location reveals an Oakland-Pontiac dealership operating in the farther section of the brick commercial block on the right.

'20's unknown town main street a.jpg

Photo was taken on Franklin Avenue looking west between Everett and Wyckoff Avenues in Wyckoff, NJ.

All buildings in photo still stand today.  Building to right over the years housed a cafe, Township police station, public library, various restaurants, etc.  It suffered a major fire in the 90s but was rebuilt. Where the gas pumps are was Wyckoff Ford, set back from the street. That too burned in the fire and was also rebuilt. Brick building on corner was an A&P grocery store when photo was taken. Later on it was cheese shop, bakery, wine shop, and physical therapy. Building on far left is the historic Brownstone Inn, a tavern that is no longer in business. 

Out of view to left was/is a row of stores. The photographer was standing on the apron of a Shell gasoline station which was torn down in the late 80s. East from Shell was a general store where I worked.

Thanks to all who keep looking here at the photos and supplying new /old ones for us to view. To AACA for continuing to keeping this thread alive and we have reached yet another Milestone - now over 700,000 views. And as I have mentioned I thought this would fade after about 3 months due to lack of interest . It speaks volumes as to how a lot of us really enjoy period material that for the most part took place before we existed.

A photo captioned Dingmans Ferry, PA, Oct 4, 1914. 


That looks to be a circa 1913-14 American Underslung on the left. That is a brand new 1915 Oakland Model 37 roadster on the right.


In the centre might be a 1913 Haynes Model 22.


Photo as first seen and a tidied version.


Alos a link to some Haynes advertising material - American Automobile Advertising published by Haynes-Apperson in 1913 (uniquecarsandparts.com.au)


I have added a photo of a 1913 Haynes Model 23 (the bigger six) which led me to thinking the centre in the photo car might be a Haynes.

Sturt St, Ballarat, Victoria, Australia, probably in the late 1930s.


The small English car at lower right is not yet identified. It looks to be a GMC tanker truck next to it.  Many of the American cars are likely to have locally produced bodies.

A recent view from street level. Some of the same buildings visible.

Here a better look at that big six Haynes:

'13 Haynes Model 23 50hp.jpg




The photo of the Haynes was taken on the IAMA (Indiana Automobile Manufacturers Association) Tour in 1913: 


"Twenty Indiana-built cars and trucks plus almost 100 people gathered around the south side of University Park for the departure of Indiana Automobile Manufacturers’ Association Indiana-Pacific Tour on July 1, 1913.  At that time, the IAMA Tour was one of the largest transcontinental tours attempted in the United States.  Planning for this 3,600 mile trek took over eight months to coordinate all the logistics for the 20 vehicle caravan from Indianapolis to Los Angeles."
