Car in my avatar on the left is a 37.
I always thought this was a photo of a young Bill Simpson! Gary
Daigler's ESSO station. This was on the corner of Chestnut Ridge and Gasport Road.
James Durfy's Kendall station and grocery store. This was on the corner of Mill and Chestnut Ridge.
Medina NY, now a train museum
The Holly Mfg. Co. was founded in 1859 in Lockport, NY It became one of the largest firms producing Holly patent Steam Engines and Pumps.
The plant of the Holly Mfg. Co. was transferred to the Worthington Pump & Machinery Corp. on 15 Jul 1915.
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
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'd vote for Graham (big sign). Gary
Note Pontiac Safari near the garage
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.
They look like 1911 Macks
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.) 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?
