            Clara passed away in 2011 - the widow of husband, Earl.

Besides the Anglia behind the Lark, there is a Bedford van, a Taunus 17M station wagon, a Morris Oxford, an Austin Cambrian and a Vauxhall Victor station wagon. I'm curious as to what was happening in the photo. There is a traffic jam of cars coming toward the camera and not many going away. Being a black and white photo it is hard to tell, but the RCMP officer does not appear to be wearing the ceremonial red serge jacket, even though he is wearing the dress uniform pants and riding boots. It is more likely the brown service jacket.

                Caption from the Tacoma Times October 5, 1939. It was found on line at the Tacoma Public Library archives. The picture was sound there as well, but I found it on the H.A.M.B. .
                Gee, the only personal info we don't have on Miss Thorsen is her Social Security number. Wonder why they don't do that any more?????????

                  Here's a trunk handle plate from the same Allen Motors, Tacoma. This was from my Grandma's '52, bought new at Allen, but in a new building by then.

                  • Is this a Studebaker?

                    The black car first in line on the right hand side of the street---Is this a Stude? The way the roof and the trunk come together reminds me of a '39-42 Champion. Have I missed the boat on this one?

                              The shape looks right, but I don't think Studebakers had the hinges on the outside of the deck lid.
