    Caimag had the same issue, if one were to post to the Caimag site directly, for the Caimag site to host the picture, then you got a thumbnail to click for a larger view. But the folks that regularly posted to the Caimag (..and thanks to those guys!) "Vintage Pictures of the Day" always utilized photo hosting sites....and then their pictures showed up full size in the post instead of as a thumbnail needing to be clicked. It's all about server capacity, the more giga-whats you store on your server the more it costs you to host a website.
    Oh yeah, forgot about that part. Photobucket or one of the other photo-things that made a habit of losing your photos if you didn't pay the ransom...

    • Looks like the Milwaukee fire engine has SEAGRAVE on the left hand door. And the white Servicar has 1934 Ohio plates, so an early one.

        Seagrave is one of the first manufacturers of fire apparatus and is still in business today - probably the last one from the originals. Coincidentally they ended up moving early from Columbus Ohio where they originated to Clintonville, WI. a bit NW of Milwaukee.

            Things go better with Coke - Not sure if this was delivery from the bottler or if it is some local use vehicle.

              Can anyone recognize the guy on the custom trike in the background turned toward the camera? Wonder if these cycles are still around?

                • Yes that's Ed Roth on the Candy Wagon trike and the other trike in the foreground is the AEE Corvair trike, web search shows they both still exist.

                    I was a big fan of Big Daddy Roth though I only bought one shirt "Wild Child" and still have someplace membership card to the Rat Fink fan club.

                    • The Coke delivery vehicle is a 1930 VL, probably a VC commercial outfit with a variant of the package truck body. These were used for delivery work until the Servicar came out in 1932. The VC had iron pistons, low compression heads, a one inch carburetor with manifold and cylinder inlets to match, and low lift cams to further strangle performance.

                          Italian cycle dealer and one time speed record holder Gino Cavanna. I didn't search for all details but one Vincent site says it is a Vincent engine in a Motto Guzzi V8 frame. Here is a modern photo of the bike without fairing.
