There are some cars parked near the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Maybe someone can recognize the model of the black one.

Postcard of the early sixties (the cancel on the back is from 1963).
Publisher: L.B. Prince Co. (Arlington, VA)

The National Opera in Riga Latvia, postmarked 21 January, 1931. Note the horse-drawn carriages parked on the right side of the building.

I've tried many times to determine the car pictured on this card but no luck.
Anyone know the make model and year of this car?

Cheers, Bill

Returning to this card I posted last year:

I wrote:

I think you're right about it looking east on Bancroft, but you wouldn't be able to see the Campanile from this angle; it would be too far off to the left. The building visible beyond the greenery looks vaguely like International House (which opened in 1930), and that's where it would be in relation to this intersection.

It turns out that I was wrong. Yesterday I saw a large photograph of this intersection from roughly the same time, and the street sign on the cross-street (by The Owl Drug) says BANCROFT. So the postcard has us on Telegraph, looking north toward the campus, with Sather Gate down at the end of it, hardly visible, and Wheeler Hall beyond that (yellowish in the picture). The Campanile is hidden from view by the tall buildings on the northeast corner of the intersection.

There where a few here on Main St Fort Bragg in 1928, might be why they took the photograph.

Nice find. Not a heck a lot more cars though. To be fair, anything coming this way is headed up towards the lost Coast. Or to Leggett and Hwy 101, where Lane Redwood Flat is/was. A few more cars here.






The photo side of this card was a bonus, bought it for the RPO, seller didn't show it, and we can see why, scanned it twice, thought that was a cat hair, doesn't show so much in hand.

From 1905. It was posted in Monson, Mass to Stockton, Calif - a Christmas greeting.

My parents had a red 1960 Rambler station wagon. the one odd feature that I remember is that it had a push button automatic transmission. Many fond memories of riding in the back with my younger brother and Cap our spaniel.

My Dad bought a Rambler in '56 and his 2nd in '62. I was in the back for a cross country trip that year until they left me in a gas station in Ohio...

Dad declared the Rambler the best car ever made, but I seemed to notice he was always fiddling with it.
