After You've Gone: 1935

Washington, D.C., 1935. "NO CAPTION." Yet another nameless notable whose fame did not outlast her photo, and a reminder that, after we take that big black train from Union Station, 99.9 percent of us will eventually be completely and utterly forgotten.

Stylish Lady and Her Car

We might not know the lady's name, but her car is a 1935 Pontiac sedan. Those of us old enough will recognize the "Body By Fisher" emblem just behind the front fender. Usually found on the door sills, but here mounted outside.

The Fisher family started out building wagons in the 1880's and moved into building auto bodies by 1909. Before their acquisition by General Motors in 1919, Fisher Coachworks built bodies for a number of different automakers including Ford, Studebaker, Cadillac and Packard. Fisher was dissolved into other GM divisions in 1984.
