    Cool photo, I wonder if the oldies were pedaling the 50's ride with the door open?

    Description

    Esso gas station, located at 1-3 Maine Street Bridgton, Maine, was owned by Charles E. Thompson. This tax record is for a commercial building owned by Charles E. Thompson at the time of the survey, ca. 1938. The card was updated at an unknown time with the addition of the name Aldrich Realty, Norway Me. The card references a deed dated 1926; this is not the date of the photograph. Signs on the building also say "Hilltop Hudson Terraplane" and "International Terraplane," and "International Hudson," referring to brands of motor vehicles sold and serviced. There is a poster from the State Theater in the corner of the window

    Description

    This is a view of Bank Square looking northwest from the head of Hudson Avenue toward South Main Street and Elm Street around 1941. The middlle building with the gable roof was the First National Store. Shortly after this picture was taken the First National moved to the north side of the river where Griffins is currently located. The Guilford House of Pizza is the current occupant of this building.

    Here is a photo from November 1908 taken at the Fairgrounds racetrack in Birmingham, Alabama. It refers to a driver, Emile Stricker, who was killed in an accident at the race.

    Here is a related article that mentions a man that is in the above photo, Lewis Stang.

    Lots of time local new car dealers would supply one car for a NASCAR race at a local track. After the race the tape was removed the car ran thru the clean up shop and sold as a demintrator . This happened every year at the Fairgrounds Race track in Birmingham Alabama..

    That's a clean looking roadster appropriately parked in front of the Visual Education building. I wish we had a rear view to check out the roll pan and nerf bar. Love the wishbones.

    Back in the late 60's, early 70's my dad ran an appliance repair business in Akron, like 20 miles from here. and my mother would drive out here to pick up parts so my dad could fix toasters, irons, and mixers, etc for customers so they wouldn't have to buy a new one

  21. Postwar Dodge?
     
  22. I think it is a Dodge, maybe about 1940-41 and I'm not sure what the postwar ones looked like, maybe the same in '46?. I'm no MOPAR person though.
     
  23. Definitely a Dodge or Plymouth from 1939 to about 1947.

    Plymouth PT-81 pickup, 1939-41 had the little "speed lines" on the fenders. Very cool.

     
  25. Dodge did, too. Fargo did, too.
     
  26. When you see that sort of thing it is usually because a panel needed to be strengthened.
     
  27. In the case of the "speed lines" or "ribs", the Dodge and Fargo had basically the same fender details as the Plymouth. Sorry for the recent photo.
