A friend of mine from my University days (Go Tech!) sent me this scan of a family photograph in the hopes of identifying the car, and therefore the year when it was taken. It is believed to be taken in Oconto, Wisconsin before 1917, and shows Antoine and Anna Martineau in their new car. As the car appears to be brand new, if we can nail down the make, model and most importantly year, we can help the family date the photo. So get out your Brass Era memories and help ID the car. DTA are you out there?
Here is a closer look at the car itself:
I’m fairly certain I’ve seen this car before in a museum somewhere (but my Brass Era recognition skills are useless), and I’ll be sorting through my thousands of photos to see it I can find it. Meanwhile if you think you know it, call it out in the comments.
