      I think so, Dave. Good eye. BP

        Tom, the two-tone green Plymouth in the first row, next to the empty parking place, is a 1955 model. There are a lot of 1955 models in that photo, but I see only one 1956; the two-tone blue Chevy 210, the eighth car from the left in Row 3. BP

                    AH. I see it now. When I first saw it I thought it was a '56 because of the side trim. I had forgotten that that style of trim started in '55 and carried over with a little modification in '56. '56 saw taller tail fins too. I jumped on that identification because my parents bought a new '56 Plymouth when I was 9 and I remember that trim vividly. Tom

                    • 8313 and it's Copy 8324 look like the Wyoming State Capitol or one of the Capitols, on a VERY Busy day!
                      But this pic has probably the MOST Studes. in one non-Factory Photo that we have seen here in all these "In the Day" Photos! I am up to SEVEN and there have to be more in the curved driveway too far to I.D.

                      YES, MANY, many Studes. there, including 2 Conestoga's. I do not see any newer Than 1956, could be taken in earlier '56, before the '57's came out. Quite a few '55's, isn't that a '56 Caddy in the Right Front?

                                This picture was taken in northeastern North Carolina during the Great Depression. There are others of this same car and the other people who were in the car. These folks were migrant farm workers. Traveling north to harvest potatoes if I remember correctly.
