Oil? Water? Fresh air?

"Robert and Norma Norton of Houston, Texas, with their family, having cool air piped into their Cadillac sedan at a drive-in restaurant, even though the car already has air conditioning. This photo appeared in a Look Magazine article illustrating life before and after the Nortons had their home air conditioned. Photo by Jim Hansen. (via Shorpy)"

Steve (58L8134), thanks. Always I enjoy the heart's blood, that you use instead of ink to comment.

Ok friends, take this high-resolution image to study the clash of two worlds: modern times meet vintage.

...that's an interesting photo and one I've not seen before...


Dave (O_D), I rather believe that its high-resolution provides more and detailed information. The image itself is -> part of our website for many years. Please find attached high-res image sections of a photograph, taken from the same car (well, I believe that this is the same car).

The 1934 Packard three-quarter side view. Inscribed on photo back; Packard 1101 eight, eleventh series, 8-cylinder, 120-horsepower, 136-inch wheelbase, 7-person touring car (body type #710), Packards of Emperor Kang Teh of Manchukuo painted specially in imperial crimson, each car bearing Emperor's crest on doors & radiator cap emblems, photographed before gates of Imperial Detached Palace at Akasaka, Tokyo (in 1922-23 this was the palace of the Prince Regent of Japan).

Item # EB01d790


The image description was intentionally shortened to focus on the image section and will be continued soon.

Mal, thanks for the link, good images, even in color.

The next chapter brings to mind a question, open for 8 years.

To identify the passenger in the backseat of the below shown 1934 Packard touring car let's listen to Wikipedia:
"Yasuhito, Prince Chichibu (秩父宮雍仁親王, Chichibu-no-miya Yasuhito Shinnō, 25 June 1902 – 4 January 1953), was the second son of Emperor Taishō (Yoshihito) and Empress Teimei (Sadako), a younger brother of Emperor Shōwa (Hirohito) and a general in the Imperial Japanese Army."

Inscribed on photo back; Packard 1101 eight, eleventh series, 8-cylinder, 120-horsepower, 136-inch wheelbase, 7-person touring car (body type #710), Prince Chichibu, brother of Emperor of Japan, imperial crimson car owned by Emperor Kang Teh of Manchuko, emperor's crests on tonneau door & radiator cap, note plank road.
