We are sorry to only be hitting on two out of eight cylinders after competing in last weekend’s VSCCA Mt Equinox Hill Climb, although this image from the Farm Security Agency at the Library of Congress Digital Collections that passed across our digital desk this morning is still of interest.
The photo was taken in August of 1937 by an unknown photographer of the Amity Hall, located in the Pennsylvania town it is named after. The town is situated about 15 miles northwest of Harrisburg, Pa on Route 22 and the “Men’s Hall” sited there contained a Washroom, Dormitory, and Barber Shop.
All of the Dodge cars on auto hauling trailers which at least one of was pulled by a Dodge tractor apparently were on the way to Dodge distributor or dealers. Did these vehicles originate from the Hamtramck, Michigan factory or did the automaker have another assembly plant located in the east? Share with us what you find of interest in this picture.
