    Looks like an auto parts store in the 1920s. Note the ad displays at the counter and on the wall for Gabriel Snubbers, Watson Stabilators, and Harve Stabilizers. These were all add on devices to minimize axle and steering shock and rebound when one side of a straight axle dropped into a big hole in the terrible and mostly unpaved roads of the day. These products weren't anything like the later shock absorbers that came into use but they were a popular aftermarket add on for many years. I think Watsons came as an OEM parts on some cars. And the tire chains on sale were likely for the muddy roads that everybody drove on instead of for snow like they later came to be known for.

  16. Curtiss JN-4 with that distinctive Curtiss V8 engine.
     

  17. I made some enquiries on this one as I didn't recognise it. That 1932 Chev style headlight bar suggests GM and it turns out it is a 1932 Opel cabriolet with a 1.8 litre six cylinder engine.
     
  18. This one is a 1908 Milnes-Daimler.

  20. Has to be more than a coincidence that there are three of the same model Oldsmobile together there. Plus another similar era one in front? Or is that a Buick?

    3 -'55 Oldsmobiles, a '54 Buick and a 51 Plymouth, along with a 52-54 Ford in front. Can't tell what the 5th car is.
