    More specifically, based upon what can be seen of the grille in this photo, the subject car appears to be a '41.

    When the '47 Studebakers came out they were the first "all new" cars to be produced by and American manufacturer after WWII. Their ads included the saying, "First by far in a post war car."

    Apparently nobody could see the Big Trees pix but me, so I'll delete that and try again another time when I can find them on a different source.

    The best brief account of the Johnstown Flood I've read -- told in human terms, not just statistics
    and sterile facts -- is from 2002 and was written by John Templeton. The article says as much, or
    more, in a couple of pages than entire books written on the subject. Search: www.redlandsfort-
    nightly.org/papers/templeton02.htm.

    Below: Romanticized, sanitized, and published in 1890 by Kurz and Allison Art Publishers, this artist's
    conception of the Johnstown fires following the big flood is subtitled "Hundreds Roasted Alive at the
    Railroad Bridge." Image thanks to Jeff Smith at SoapySmiths.Blogspot.

    Since no photos were possible during the actual deadly flood tide, artists did their
    best to recreate the event by illustrating events, based on first-person accounts. This
    engraving ran in Harper's Weekly and is thanks to the Johnstown Flood Museum.
