Go way to the right bottom. I find it kind of interesting the front left wheel looks like a mag wheel of somebody's hot rod. I don't recall wheels on vehicles of that nature. I'll have to check Google and see what cars looked like in 1938.

Bernd, I noticed that too. It actually looks like a wheel that would ride on a rail, or there is no tire just a wheel/rim.....

There are a few other things that don't add up. I checked Google for any vehicle made in the US in 38. I could not find one with a fender that looks like that. Also there doesn't seem to be any headlight you would find on a '38 Chevy, Ford, Chrysler or any other make. Just seems strange. Of course it could be an earlier model than a 38 also. Any car buff's here that can identify the vehicle?

Bernd, I have been studying cars for many years, . It looks to me that it is a truck wheel and the fender looks like very late 20s or very early 30s. The lights may be attached to the grill/radiator. Why there is no tire, is the real puzzle to me... .

Looks like a 1929 to 1933 Ford AA truck to me. Seems to be missing the headlights and tire. Tires and headlights were hard to get during the depression.

Dave,

I believe you nailed it. Fourth picture down. 1930 Ford AA truck.

Mystery solved.

Here's a great idea for a kit. It's a colo(u)rized photo from Vancouver, BC, 1928.



(I suspect parking in downtown Vancouver now costs more than $.10/hour....)

Great picture Dave. Where did you find that?

It's only make-believe

There's quite a "movement" to take old B&W photos and add color to them. This is one I found by following some links to a site that colourizes Canadian photos. Since I used to live in the Vancouver area, I was particularly fascinated with how it looked 90 years ago. You can see how different it looks now by checking this location on Bing or Google Street View.

I liked the signage, as well as the general shape of the structure (even though it's almost 30 years beyond my period.)

Dave, that would make a great kit!
I love the colour added to this old photo, it was very well done.
Looks like it could be a possible future kit from Rail Scale Miniatures.
Thanks for posting it!

and 40 to mine but still it tells you what colors work and don't. Look at houses down the street. They have black slashes but look at colors they used

Not my era, so it wouldn't fit on my layout. And I should finish one of a dozen or so half-completed projects before tacking a new one.

I thought this structure would have a particular appeal for our kit makers north of the border...

Okay Dave, I got it. It would make a nice kit. Didn't
realize you were directing to the kit builders in Canada.

I wish there were something I could say to help you deal with the anxiety your going through with your best friend. I went through exactly what you are 13 years ago. I still can not replace the loss. The only solace is knowing
they will not be suffering and not living a poor quality of life....longer than necessary.

The Santa Ysabel General Store seems like a neat structure to model, simply for that typeface:
