    Description

    "Brush and Cole automobiles are being unloaded from freight cars by the Portland Company's electrically operated track crane. In 1910, the Portland Company began selling these two makes of new automobiles as well as the Thomas. The Brush runabouts shown here were "the cars for the common man." They cost only $385 each and had wooden axles." --Fletcher, David H. 'The Portland Company 1846-1982.' Charleston, S.C. : Arcadia Pub., 2002. 84.

    [​IMG] Item 98829 zoom [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Description

    The only bridge to Deer Isle was opened in 1939. Until then a ferry service, begun in 1792 by Nathaniel Scott and operated by his descendants for 150 years, transported people and goods. Paved roads and automobiles came late to the island because a busy network of steamboats connected with mainland locations. However, with steamer service declining and tourism increasing, by the 1930s the time had come to build a bridge. Holton D. Robinson and David B. Steinman, who had built the Waldo-Hancock Bridge over the Penobscot River in 1931, designed the 1,088-foot suspension bridge over the Eggemoggin Reach. Their challenges were numerous: wind and stability issues, substantial tides, a necessary minimum 85-foot underclearance midway across a 200-foot channel to accommodate tall masts, a required early summer completion date necessitating winter work, and a limited budget. The project used a number of problem-solving innovations, including off-site prefabrication of the forms for the tower pedestals and cofferdams, utilization of pre-stressed twisted strand cables and new connection methods, and construction of a steep approach and shorter-than-usual vertical curve at the center to provide clearance. The bridge, financed as a Depression-era public works project, was completed in March 1939. Vehicles paid a toll for many years.

    Seems strange today, I have old gundog books and most of them have how to train your dog to get in the trunk. Seems weird since my lab is my copilot:D

    Do you think they backed them in just for the shot? 55 Saxon cars lined up in Sioux City Iowa to challenge everyone to a hill climb or race. I think you would play hell even finding 55 Saxons today. The nighttime shot from the capitol looking towards downtown Des Moines prior to all the big buildings is a nice shot
