Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

ELVIRA! In the city, ’38 Dodge

Written on the back were indications of three names. The first name was partially ruined by the glue used to stick it in a book but the guy on the left has a name ending with “ly”. The second name was unmistakably “Elvira.” And the third name was no more than a simple “me.” Can’t quite make out the state on the plate or we might be able to pin down a city here. Until I do, if I do, here’s a great photo of a group of friends taken sometime after 1938 — because the car looks a bit driven and it is a 1938 (Dodge).

UPDATE: I got out the old magnifying glass on the original photo and positively identified the plate as Michigan. So, in the late 30’s, early 40’s what city in Michigan could have been this size? Detroit? Flint? Grand Rapids or Lansing. Anybody know for sure? Leave me a comment.
