This was POTD for 5/7/22. 

This pic is from the DuBois Historical FB Page. No one seemed to have a definite answer on where this location is in DuBois. Please post your thoughts and the year you think this was.

Thank you Steve for posting this. I will have to check with my MIL. She remembers so much about DuBois back then.

What make and year were the cars?

I'm going to go with 1934/1935?  Looks to me like a 1934 Ford Sedan. I tried looking up Gulf economy test but didn't find anything yet. I would think they would use a current model car. Here is a pic I found of a 1934 Ford Sedan

It looks to me like both cars are the same and they may be cop cars 

I don't think the closest car is a cop car since it says Gulf Economy Test on the door.

Men's clothing never changes! If there were women in the picture you wouldn't need the car to date the picture. :huh:

Good point since no women are in the photo they must be at home barefoot and pregnant.  That helps date things.

Ironing their house dresses. Those floral print cotton ones that buttoned up the front. Actually, I remember my mother doing that. I don't know where my iron is. Somewhere, unless I tossed it.
