Anita Ekberg actually.
It's totally unfair to the fine ladies who worked in the Diamond T plant to post their photos next to the trollups above, but this shot from the factory lunch counter is an interesting peek back in time.
If you go to Google maps - type in 9200 Atlantic Avenue Margate City NJ click on the satellite box in upper right and you will get an aerial view of Lucy the elephant. Use your mouse wheel to zoom in. I went up inside the elephant when I was a kid in the 50's and it still is in my head.
Does anyone know the location and history of this photo ... what's the story on the giant elephant in the background?[/QUOTE]
Lucy the MARGATE Elephant , New Jersey 1921

Sure miss the 60s
Sure must be an interesting story behind this one
My future mom-in-law (RIP) on the right and her older sister. Westbury NY. We guess the photo was around 1935 considering she was born in 1918. The car in the photo was her father's. A model a cabriolet?
Looks like a BIG tree hit it just in front of the windshield
Building Diamond T truck cabs, Chicago 1946. It was a small, independent company. They built big trucks out of small parts.
Yup, a 1930 Model A Cabriolet. Cool shot.

Darn, why didn't I think of that! Thought it was a real heavy large wheel of some sort, maybe?
The Chuckwagon Gang is still going strong after 75 years. I checked and they are on tour right now in the east somewhere.
It looks like a still from the new Great Gatsby movie - 20% real, 80% CGI.
Is anyone else baffled by the menu?
Me too! Big hair and short skirts...
Didn't sound very appetizing to me.
