About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Thelma & Louise: 1924

Thelma & Louise: 1924

Washington, D.C., 1924. "Washington Hunt motor car." The building is the Joaquin Miller cabin at Rock Creek Park. National Photo Co. View full size.

 

Flint Six

I believe that the car is a 1923 or 1924 Flint Six. The Flint Six was made from 1923 - 1927 and was affiliated with the Durant and Locomobile car companies.

No Oldsmobiles had the curved detail shown below the doors on the dust/chassis apron. Most Oldsmobiles also had canted louvers on the hood instead of vertical louvers.

Hwaaah?

Okay, is Hunt the brand of automobile (unlikely from the syntax) or does this fine motor belong to the Washington Hunt (a group of the unspeakable in pursuit of the inedible)? Irrespective of that, the dog is a real winner.

[The car is an Oldsmobile. -Dave]
