Horseless Carriage Club of America
Hosted at the New England Museum of Wireless and Steam
East Greenwich, RI
27 June 2007
Last Wednesday my friend Dave Bono and I attended a workshop for educators interested in manufacturing. That was followed by a visit to the Haas Machine Tool showroom in Windsor CT.
During the day Dave asked me if I was interested in going to the Horseless Carriage show in Greenwich RI on the following Wednesday. I said sure, why not.
Last night Dave called me to say that he had to go to a funeral on the day of the show, which I had completely forgotten about. So Dave who started this thing didn't go and I, who had forgotten about it, did. I think it was a plot on Dave's part to get me to go out and take pictures of old cars on what was the hottest and most humid day of early summer.
Here are some photos of the show.
The museum had steam up and engines were working in the machine shed.
Since I know little or nothing about old cars (or new ones for that matter) I tried to take a photo of the profile of each car and of the front where most have some sort of identifier on them.

This Lozier was from Colorado and was brought by trailer across the country for this rally.

Pope Hartford. When I was a lad living in Hartford CT one of the Pope factory buildings was a few blocks from our apartment.

This lady was the only person I saw dressed in period costume. She graciously consented to pose for a photo for me.
