    The "Bond Bread" van uncorked a flood of childhood memories. Growing up in New Jersey, Bond Bread was in our house everyday. I haven't thought of it since I left the area almost fifty years ago. A quick Google suggests the brand disappeared in the sixties.

    I think you are right, that looks like the Hartford museum to me also.

    I think they were imported. I saw a test of one in Teknik För Alla
    they drowe it from Stockholm to Kirkenes in Norway through Finland.
    And i have found one scraped in the woods so there were some
    but not that many i think. My father told me they were sold in
    Sweden and they were realy bad cars as all east european and
    Russian cars
    Judging by the houses in the background i gues the pic is from
    Dalarna and the first half of the 50s Interesting is the Buick
    have California plates.Many people from Dalarna emigrated
    to USA and returned in the 50s and had cars with them

    I need some help here. Can anyone identify the "cutaway" car in this photo? This was taken at a Graham Paige dealership in Portsmouth, Ohio in the 1930's. Trying to find the location of this dealership by determining the year or make of the car. Thanks.

    I was looking for the squared off hood can't really see it but have to agree with you, the 41's had the hood go all the way to the radiator

    Try looking at city directories in the public library. They are kind of like phone books. You just pull out the one from the era (years) and look up Graham dealership. Note the address (cross reference if street names were changed) and go visit.

    If I had to explain that to my child I would cry. That's some fucked up shit that used to be so common and accepted in this country. I raise my 2 sons to loathe intolerance and racism.

    http://www.forneymuseum.org/FE_AmeliaEarhartGoldBug.html Maybe it's been moved. The Forney had three Kissels when I was there about two years ago. One was an six wheeled contraption that was built for someone from the middle east. WOOPS, the six wheeler is a Hispano Suiza. They only have two Kissels.

    Mea Culpa, after some research, I find the Museum in Hartford does not have Amelia's car. It is at the Forney. What threw me off was the locomotive in the background. Hartford has a locomotive, but not that one. The pictured Loco is in the Fornay. Hartford museum has a similar Gold Bug.

    I think it's a 37 De luxe. Split windsheilds started in 38.

    Crudbro, I'd say the year the pic was taken was 1935, not
    later than '36. This could be late '35, displaying the up-
    coming '36. (That's a speculation, of course.) :rolleyes: I'm not
    a Graham expert, but the wheels and body lines are very
    mid-'30s. Of course, seeing the car from more angles
    would help a ton, but we deal with what we have, right? ;)
