1920s

Wills Sainte Claire, Willys Knight, and Stutz auto ads

Here are some ads for long-out of business automobile makers: Wills Saint Claire, Willys Knight, Winton, and Stutz. Stutz produced luxury automobiles, and this ad is clearly aimed towards the Edwardian mother. The Winton ad is from 1915. The Willys Knight ads appear to be from the 1920s, the model 70 was produced in 1927. I am not sure when the Whippet was produced. There are several pages of ads for Willys Knight sedans and autos. The Wills Sainte Claire ad features its Canadian Goose logo and this page contains 2 scanned ads.

1920s Studebaker, Rauch & Lang, Pierce-Arrow, and Reo motor car advertisements

Here’s various ads for Studebaker cars from the 1920s, the Pierce-Arrow French Brougham, Rauch & Lang worm drive, and Reo 5th and 6th cars and sedans (from 1913).
I can see why the Studebaker is such a classic. The luxurious illustrated advertisement style is distinct. Well bred dogs to go with a well bred car. Stylish women. These early 1920s Studebaker ads are all about luxury.

1920s Packard Auto Ads

Here are 9 Packard car advertisements from the 1920s, including one for “Your 1925 Packard”. Several of these ads contain the slogan, “Ask the Man Who Owns One”.

Old car ads: Maxwell, Nash, and Overland car ads

Here are 4 illustrated ads for a 1920s Nash roadster, an early 1920s Overland Car, and 2 pages of ads for Maxwell Motors.

1920s Lincoln Automobile Ads

Here are some old Lincoln car ads from the 1920s and before. They include illustrated ads for the Berline Landaulet, the Cabriolet, and the 4 passenger Coupe. My favorite illustration is of a family watching a biplane in the sky, leaned against their Lincoln vehicle.

This entry is part 6 of 13 in the series My Photography

This was such a fun photography workshop to organize with Joann of Clean Cut Creations Vintage Auto Repair. I have always wanted to put together a “shoot out” event, after having attended several on the coasts. The fact that we chose a vintage theme and were able to round up some classic cars, made things extra awesome.
I provided all the authentic vintage dresses, hats and wardrobe, I applied all the period styled makeup on the models, and guided their hair styles.

St. Louis City and Industry Photos from Glass Slides

I’m not sure what building was being built, or torn down, but here are some interesting construction, street scene, and architecture photos. One is obviously of the Old Rock House Saloon & Restaurant, and there are photos of two plaques: The Nichols-Howard Building – Landmark of the Great Fire of 1849, and The Old Rock House.
