That Dog

has seen some things.

Connecticut inspection stickers?

1940 and 1941. I could find no image to validate. Ideas anyone?

[It could mean they're from Connecticut. - Dave]

Trafficators

That little box below the windshield contains an arm announcing a RH turn, activated by a trigger on the dashboard. This Ford probably spent some time in Europe as these were not a USA item and were required in England.

"Yes, I let him drive, but he's never off his leash even for one minute."

Who is that lady?

Let's check the FBI file. Diminutive, fairly attractive young woman, stern expression, little round sunglasses, wearing a beret. Think I got it. She's waiting for Clyde to come back from casing out the First National Bank!

Woah, put her back in!

She's not done yet!

In a moment of self-awareness

the lines of Emily Brontë's 'Fall, Leaves, Fall' come to her.

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.

Somebody's not enjoying the foliage

By the way, I wonder if she got that dog in Harlem?

I NEVER!

That [poor] girl looks extremely bored and would rather not get out of the car and mix with the bourgeoisie.
