This photo is of Alden Handy’s own P II and it carries the following note: J.R. Owen, Ltd. town Sedan body, 4 passenger, black. Bought of F. Wynne Paris, Newton, Mass, 29 Sept-ember, 1947. Taken by Mystic Lakes, Winchester, Mass, 18 October, 1947. This is the best photograph I have of my car.
Joe Puleo who has been sharing the Alden Handy photos with us, took this album in trade as part payment for working on this car for Alden Handy’s nephew and has this to say about it: This is the car I worked on in the 1970s. It was completely unrestored beyond the fact that it may have been painted, though I think not. It certainly hadn’t been painted since this picture was taken. I was under the impression that this was the 2nd body on the chassis and at one time it had belonged to Gladys Swarthout, an opera singer and movie star.
