Wordless Wednesday: At the wheel

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

My uncle Orvin Davis, Jr. loved to drive, even at age 3, it seems. 

Shenandoah, Virginia
September 1928

  1. Nothing negative about your Uncle Orvin but the car is a beauty! Do you know the manufacturer?

    1. Peter, I don't actually know the make of the car, but ever since I read your comment, I've been googling old cars and old hood ornaments. I think it's a Pontiac, maybe a new model for 1928 based on a similar picture of one. There was a Pontiac dealership in Shenandoah, and the owners were family friends, so it's likely a Pontiac.

  2. Fantastic car and a cute three year old!!

  3. Love the old car...what a great pic!

    I'm with Sally too...such an adorable little one!

  4. Cool vintage car and cute little guy in the driver's seat!

  5. You need a later picture of him with all the neighborhood dogs riding along with him to the store! LOL
