Lotus Elan, I believe.
sorry no - elva is right; if you look again the front is similar but not the rest
Did anyone answer your question about Denise?
I wouldn't mind knowing the story, what's the deal?
I would love to know more about this picture. Strange cranes loading? to/from a ship built like a submarine???
Henry Ford connection??
probably a McDougall 'Whaleback' freighter - designed for Great Lake trade yet SS City of Everett first American steamship to circumnavigate globe
Actually four, although three are the A-17A type with retractable gear.
Air Force Museum:
This one in Peru:
This fixed gear A-17 at an undisclosed crash site, waiting for recovery (from aircraftwrecks.com):
And one more that was recently found in a lake in Canada where it crashed and sank in 1940. The remains of the two crewmen were recovered and the plane, broken up but complete, will be recovered soon by the RCAF for restoration.
Rail cars are Deleware, Lakawana, and Western, my guess would be Buffalo coal or ore docks. D, L & W serviced the steel mills in the Buffalo area. Iron ore from laker freighters, and coal from PA to power the mills, and then also transport steel ad iron to east coast markets. Wode cars would suggest late 1800's early 1900's. As mentioned the ship was likely a Whale back ore carrier.
The cranes were none as Thornberg hoists this shot is labled 1900.
"Buffalo, New York, circa 1901. "Unloading ore from whaleback carrier." 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company."

Hope y'all don't mind, not way in the past, but five years gone by. Many friends might remember my little dog ChiChi. She accompanied me to many car shows. R.I.P.
Couple of bike pics
The hat is awesome.
That is actually a lot of air! The landing must have been rough.
Has she ever posted here? Does she even know how special she is to us?
Thanks for the info guys. I had never seen anything like that, and I'm a railfan. Must've been painfully slow. You can see one of the buckets between the lighthouse and the hoist.
