I'll throw my hat into the ring.
Not exactly a hat on a car, but from an earlier, pre-hat era. Dude in the buggy is my buddy Bert Morris. This picture was sent to me today by Charlie Morris's great-grandson, Louie King. It appears (to me) to date from the 1890s.
I'd like one of these for Christmas, complete with horse--- but I already have a dog.
Lovely photo, I like any old black and white picture with a canoe in it Has anyone made a book of old black and white canoe pictures??
Kathy, This is a wonderful picture. Canoe trailers like this appear to have been more common than I ever imagined. The one shown at http://forums.wcha.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=2393&d=1166039533 still gets regular use every summer and Ray Schell made a reproduction shown below that was on display at the 2013 Assembly. Thanks for sharing,
It is not a book but the Wooden Canoe Journal Archive at http://store.wcha.org/Wooden-Canoe-Journal-Archive-on-CD-ROM.html has the largest collection of black and white canoe pictures that I have ever seen in one place.
Who wouldn't love this hat and this vehicle. Just a few years too late, I'm afraid.
PennYan Rainbow. George Kirby's Penn Yan Green.
Why do my pics always go upside down?
I don't know about all of your photos, but this one's because that beautiful Rainbow is looking forward to getting off the truck and into to the water!
Turn your phone the other way? Just a wild guess...
Edit it to upside down and it should come out the right way up I seem to have this problem too sometimes.(They look right way up on your pc and then you post them somewhere else and they are upside down)
Hope it helps
Some photo viewers allow you to change the orientation on the device, without actually changing the image file itself (e.g. Preview on Mac).
That photo is actually kind of cool (canoe) upside-right. Here is what it looks like bottom-to-the-sky.
PS. put into Photoshop to rotate it 180 degrees.
And I thought you didn't want to get those clean wheels and tires dirty at the river crossing. Or maybe you were doing an oil change without having to get under the vehicle.
Not a canoe, but Thule makes this ingenious rack for pickup trucks.
Beautiful canoe Dave. A Penn Yan Owasco with the same paint is the 1 canoe I wish I had kept.
Pretty blue on the truck too.
Here's one with a tiny hat - 10.5' long.
I think it was Andre who said it best... Something like, I'll another one for the other foot...? lol
Ya, but that one is a lapstrake built for double paddling ie. sitting on the floor (or a seat on the floor).
Yeah, people do for the canoes transportation. They look like a hat to the car so true.
