    I question whether it is Levittown also I lived in the area and worked there also. Levittown was built with 2 types of homes on slabs, the ranch which was predominent and a expandable cape. Those homes are all capes. Levittown maybe but I doubt it.

    I think I got it : It's a Gotfredson. Puzzled a good 20 mins over the features/grille ID. Not a lot of good pics online, brand was around 1920-1951, notable styling feature in this era was the bare cast-aluminum radiator.

    From post #88987 :

    According to the IMCDB, this is a 1928 :

  12. Convertible Weather

    Fairly timely considering the weather we're having. They HAD to be hardy souls in those days!

    I will never complain about getting into a cold car again.

    The schooners Hesper and Luther Little rotting away in Wiscasset Maine. They had been left to rot since the thirties. I remember seeing them in the late seventies, about when this pic was taken.

    Two of those images are from Wascana Lake in my hometown. ( The city's first college in the background.)

    Here's the old city hall, circa 1905.

    The VW must have been his daily driver.

    WWII was in progress by now, everything rationed, but mom managed to wrap a cube of real butter in tin foil, & retrieve it from her purse just as the hot biscuits were served!:D

  29. Yes you are probably correct. There were a lot of those "crackerbox communities" built shortly after WWII and many of them looked the same (as Seeger sang of). My dad built many similar houses in those days, they'd be framed in a week or less and done within several weeks depending on size of the work crews at the time.

    I took that pic in 1993 or 4 in Trenton Ontario Canada. The CL-13 Sabre had classic lines. :)

    It was a good original 55

    But I wanted a convertible, so, I bought a 57.
