IN MY MERRY MOTOR CAR

It's painfully obvious that I'm desperate for post titles....

This is a hodgepodge collection of old automobile photos. My information concerning them is limited (I have no clue about the makes or models of the cars) but they're fascinating to look at.

 "Fill 'er up!"

Mrs. F. Blevin and daughter - 1907

George Earl Chamberlain in 1919
(former governor of Oregon)
Just like new
 Taxi cabs at Union Station
Washington D.C. 1914
George P. Wetmore and wife
in 1909
Senator and former governor of Rhode Island 
 Sunday drive - circa 1905

 Ralph Coffin jumping over Sylvanus Stoke's Rolls Royce in 1916.
That horse looks pretty darn close to the car. I imagine that's Mr. Stokes on the left - - screaming.
 It's that pesky horse jumper again
sailing over the same Rolls Royce. It was hard to tell in the first photo, but the car is occupied.
 Red Cross Motor Corps, 1918

Ft. Myers, around 1916

Armored car, 1917
Captain Renwick
J. Pierpont Morgan, 1914

 Mrs. John E. Harris

Heck, they all break down now and then....
