Vintage Cars at Noah Webster House

Several cars at the Greenfield Village Old Car Festival, which Ruth Ann and I attended September 11 with Flickr friend Steve Brown (sjb4photos) -- had already departed the event when this was taken, and some others were parading through the streets of the village. One of the latter is the 1925 or '26 Model T Ford in the foreground. On the grass, the yellow car is a '29 Ford Model A Cabriolet; the dark green one is a '29 Ford Model A Phaeton; and the car at the far right is a 1930 Willys-Knight 66B sedan. In addition, the Model T and the two fellows behind it are hiding what I think is a '32 Buick sedan (light gray).

 

The Noah Webster House, built in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1823, was relocated to Henry Ford's Greenfield Village several decades ago. I think the setting adds to the appeal of the old cars. In 1969, Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum (now jointly called The Henry Ford) were added to the National Register of Historic Places (#69000071); the historic district includes 97 buildings.
