Low Roller: 1970

Here we are back on Schwinn Street, which turns out to be in ... New York. With a teensy tyke on yet another tiny trike. 35mm Kodachrome slide found on eBay. View full size.

Same driveway

The camera position changed too much to do a good job of this, but I've merged the two images to show that this trike is in the same driveway as shown in the earlier pic of two girls. The same dented tail end of the car is in both.

Getting warmer

The last two letters on the license plate are RL. That plate was issued in Rockland County (New York, 1966-73 series). The distant hills are also consistent with that area.

The oil leaks on the street

Definitely FORDS in the area. Fix Or Repair Daily as they were fondly called.


The car boasts a supporter plate for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

Not long for this world?

Looks like the tricycle was only temporarily abandoned.

Low rider

I hope she does a better job of parking her trike. Three photos back, it was begging to be run over.

See it now ... thanks.

She's got style

Her white sailor outfit for Easter is perfect as it is; but this fashionista has gone the extra mile of matching her socks to the pedals and handlebar grips (just one, actually) of her not left-in-the street tricycle.

Since I guessed wrong about these Kodachromes being in Pennsylvania, I'll make another guess that this little darlin' is a younger sister of the lovely lass in yellow.
