Sorry! No prize!
I do NOT know the year the picture was taken. My dad had this picture from his parents in a box. I thought it'd be neat to see some guesses from DuBois people and some older folks.
I had guessed the car to be a late 40s Desoto but this is way before my time!
I really don't see how you got 48 stars? I have a much higher resolution scan of this picture and I don't even see 10 stars. But maybe you found something I didn't see?
I will agree that the picture is from the early 50s but THERE IS NO DEFINITE ANSWER since the person(s) who could have taken the picture are no long
