    The track is the "Shady Bowl" in DeGraff, OH. It was sort of a home track to the Triangle Racing Association. There have been several images posted over time of this scene-with slightly different angles/background. The baffling thing to me is that the car looks very much like Del Baxter's which was a California car usually driven by Troy Ruttman. 'Can't imagine what that car would have been doing at DeGraff.

    Back again. The Louisiana online archive has been a real treasure trove with tons of car-related photos, so I cherry-picked another hundred or so good ones. And away we go...
    This is the Gayle Building which housed a dealership in Lake Charles, dated 1940:
    [​IMG]
    And in 1950, it inadvertently became an Esso station...

    Remember the Buick dealer from my last mass posting? This is from a few years earlier:

    ...and remember their '57 Special eight-door courtesy limo? This is their earlier one:

    And by '61 it became a Chevy dealer.

    Wait a minute - what's that wagon? Zoom in once more:
    [​IMG]
    Of all things to find in the USA, let alone Louisiana, it's a 1959(?) Simca Vedette Marly ("Marly" was the designator for station wagon). Powered by the old Ford V8-60, and almost never seen in this country. Any French HAMBers here who can verify the year? I've only found one other shot online of a wagon with these taillights.

    This last one's my favorite, despite the quality - Sharknose Grahams at a dealer which sold three other makes that were already dead - and Graham would soon be gone as well. At least they had REO to fall back on for a while...

    Over to you. Thanks for looking!

    Thank you!
    Funny thing is I never realized how small the Willys really was until I saw it parked in front of that Chevy.

    sw166 Post 93938.
    Fascinating photo taken at the 1913 Delhi Auto Show ( New York / California, where? ) showing the Votes for Women stand. Interesting place to campaign and obviously allowed by the organisers. Here in the UK this would have not taken place. ( sadly).
    I thought that by 1913, by virtue of the Women's Suffrage Parade of 1911, the women's cause was won leading to the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment and thus enabling women to take part in the 1920 Presidential election.
