The year is 1917. Don’t know too much about this vintage photo, except it shows a biplane being transported through the streets of Detroit, Michigan. To the left of the plane is a Lancia Simplex automobile showroom. The vehicle appears to be a modified Lancia Simplex – so this may be some sort of promotional event for the dealership.
Lancia Simplex discontinued their automobile line in 1917, when the U.S. entered World War I. That being the case, perhaps this scene was part of a Bond Drive. It’s certainly a great photo, whatever the back story.
At American Photo Colorizing, our goal is to shred the black & white veil that separates us from the exciting, vibrant lives of those who came before us. It’s time to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos. Your ancestors are counting on you!
