Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles

I am joining in with Cee’s Black & White Challenge, but with an emphasis on Photoshop® rather than my own photography.

I did take this first picture — a textile-related vehicle.

Laundry truck from a car show in Temple, Texas, May 2017.

But all of these other pictures are ones I inherited last year.  I didn’t take them myself, but I scanned them and restored them (somewhat) myself.  They are all about 2.5 by 4 inches in size, so scanning them at 600 dpi enlarged them and revealed more detail.  They have all been through at least one flood and at least 25 years sitting in a garage, so they are in bad shape.  They are so old and so cool I just couldn’t resist including them.  You can click on them to see larger images.

I don’t know anything about cars, so if you know the year or model of any of these, I would love to hear from you in the comments!

Larkin Co. Truck. There are a lot of “Larkin and Newton Anchor Biscuit” store display (toy-sized) trucks similar to this one available on auction sites, but I don’t know for sure they are related.

Mysterious parking lot in the wilderness.

Happy driver.

Child in toy car.

This last one is not a car or truck, but where else could I put a rickshaw picture?

The back says, “Honeymoon, Yokohama, Japan, 1921.”
