A much simpler time for romance. No cell phones, no texting, no TV's, just more time to make love!

The road in the back of my Uncle's house in Barberton, Ohio is paved with cinders. It makes for a very dust free long lasting road. Looks the same today as it did in the 50's.

Thanks for any direction.

It's a 1929 Business Coupe. The rumble seat, spare tire and tire cover would have been options. From the clothes it looks like it was taken early to mid '30's, so even though it was a relatively new car, it appears to have led a rough life.

Does anyone know fashions better to give a closer date, or can Bobby G read the license date?

My dad & Mom was married in 1937 and I have pictures of them dressed just like that.
I believe it could be any time in the 30's. I can't see the ford script on the mud flaps , looks like mud to me.

Description with this picture reads: Happy depression-era couple posing with their 1928/29 Ford Model A Business Coupe, with 1934 Missouri license plate.

Well, the plate clearly has a state name that includes two short words, which lead me to speculate it was probably 'New York'?

I can get the picture to load if I go and look at it in your profile but not here. Weird.
