    The scene is Trafalgar Square, London. Difficult to date, possibly early post WW11. The bus is an AEC ( Associated Equipment Company ) who went on to manufacture the Routemaster - the iconic red London bus known the world over.
    The model shown is possibly an STL2077 manufactured from 1937 to 1950.
    The taxis are the well known Austin 12/4s of which there were thousands.
    As regards the seeming chaos, snow notwithstanding!, well nothing changes - it is much the same today but a hundred times worse!

  7. I have lurked for 1600 plus pages and now i'm starting to feel like I might be contributing. I've been cleaning latey and have started with my desk. Everthing I've posted so far is just loose stuff thats been floating around on and in my desk. I have 1000's of old family photos and others I've bought at antique and junk shops over the years. It was the 1st pic of the thread then the 2nd that hooked me. The Vance grille was in the Vance Hotel just 1 block from Humboldt Bay in Eureka Ca. I even know a Vance from that family and picture 2 of the 19th century 20th century overlap, WOW! Thanks for the history lessons and all the great images guys.

    You guys in Ohio watch watch out for this guy!

    Yes, but it may have recently stopped operation. The owners are quite elderly, as I recall. It is east of the Phoenix area on US 60 in Apache Junction. Its big claim to fame was the hot spring mineral baths on the facility. Lots of celebs and athletes were known to frequent there to "take the waters."

    Give-'em-Hell Harry and Ike, Jan. 20, 1953. What is the car? :rolleyes: I recall
    Harry liked Chryslers, but this is something out of the ordinary, I think.

    Regarding just another woodie, that is Dr. Sam Shepard being driven to the hospital by his sister-in-law Betty. The hair photo is Dr. Sam after his second trial with the second Mrs. Shepard, Arina and his son Chip.

    It's the 1950 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Presidential Limo that served until the Kennedy '62 slabside took its place.

    Is that J E Hoover in front of Truman?

    B:confused:B
     
  26. No. Here's the caption from the AP site: "With smiles and a wave, U.S. President Harry Truman, left, and his successor, president-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower, leave the White House in an open car for inauguration ceremonies in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 20, 1953. Sitting in the front is Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, and behind him is House Speaker Joe Martin. (AP Photo)"

    BTW, those smiles were only for the camera. Harry hated Ike with a passion, and Ike hated Harry's ultra-liberalism.
     
  27. Ike in the Cosmo in '57 at his second inauguration.
