Vintage photos of:

Where the mechanics seem to be following the baseball scores. View full size.
Exhibit B in the Case of the Battered Buick is this twisted Model T. The second in a series of 1924 photos captioned "Max Wiehle." Max, son of the founder of the long-defunct Fairfax County, Va., hamlet of Wiehle Station, was a Washington, D.C., businessman who owned Potomac Sales, a car dealership. View full size.
