Back in the Model “T” Ford days, it was popular to display a product that was for sale on the back of a salesman’s car. A coupe or a roadster with the addition of an accessory pickup box or a platform and some signage made for the perfect way to display the goods and keep them in the view of potential prospects. This Ford coupe is either a 1926 or ’27 model.
The Syracuse Washing Machine Corporation located in Syracuse, New York was the producer of the Easy Washing Machine between 1877 to 1967. The early machines were hand-powered and as the years passed the Easy washer was powered by either a 1/6 h.p. electric motor or a small gasoline-powered engine at the time this photo was taken.
