The image above was found via Robert Werrbach and it originates from the Hagley Museum. It was taken in Wilmington, Delaware, circa 1931 and showed what may have been an organization from Massachusetts campaigning to Stamp Out Prohibition.
The car was on a journey from an unknown location To Seattle, Washington and Return. Check out the interesting slogans stating that repealing prohibition will: Protect Our Youth, Save Out Children, Restore the Constitution and Vote For Wet Candidates. Let us know if you can tell us more about the organization or identify the automobile.
The Royal Auto Club (RAC) of the UK produced this excellent video of its 1000 Mile Trial held earlier this year. The six-day long run ended on July 19, 2014, at Woodcote Park where it began, at the home of the RAC in Epsom, Surrey, England. The competition is a recreation of the first event which took place in 1900, in it the entrants and their cars traveled to all the way to Edinburgh, Scotland and back.
The video shows a number of interesting pre-1940 automobiles traveling through beautiful surroundings on the British Isles. Learn more at The Royal Auto Club. Thanks to reader Frank Sims for the link to the video.
Reader Benjamin Ames sent in this photo showing a couple with a Model T Ford, with coachwork and styling changes presumably done by the gentleman. None of the details are known about the car, and the only clue to the location is a 1927 license plate. If you can tell us anything more about this creation please do. It looks quite like a more upscale Model T Ford Coupe with custom coachwork we looked at earlier.
Brick roads are not something that you normally think of, and when you do, one tends to think only of brick streets in cities and towns that were fairly common even after World War II. The photo above is courtesy of Joe Sonderman and shows a section of Route 66 in Edwardsville, Illinois that was still paved in bricks in the 1940s. After a little research, it was found that the first brick street was laid here in America around 1870. Parts of the Lincoln Highway were also originally brick, and you can learn all about how it was done in an interesting period article at The Clay-Worker.
