San Francisco circa 1920. “Chalmers touring car at Spreckels Mansion, N.E. corner Octavia & Washington streets.” Wearing yet another variation on the “California top,” an accessory (this one with sideways-sliding windows) that afforded some of the advantages of the era’s heavier, more expensive closed-body models. 5×7 inch glass negative by Christopher Helin.


Columbus, Georgia, circa 1960, and that’s all we know. If you know these ladies, or are one of them yourself, speak up. 4×5 inch acetate negative.
