Essex Motors

Broadway, Virginia 

I can't seem to find my notes on this car, but if I remember correctly it is a 1925 model. The wooden spoke wheels were an unusual and interesting feature. We will continue our visit to Broadway next week. Hope you will plan to join us.

Enjoy the weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.

Restoration

Broadway, Virginia 

One day last month I was in the small town of Broadway in the Shenandoah Valley. I had come primarily to photograph along the railroad tracks that run through town, but as I walked through an alleyway between the tracks and Main Street, I was surprised to see several old cars through an open doorway. As I walked around the building, I could see dozens of vintage cars through the dusty windows, and I headed to the office to see if I could get permission to go in and take pictures.

Join me the rest of this week at WW Motor Cars and explore rooms filled with old cars in various stages of restoration.

Snow on the Blue Ridge

Warren County, Virginia 

Snow still lingered in the Blue Ridge Mountains as I drove along the Gooney Manor Loop back in March.

Unfortunately, a fire which started last Saturday has scorched almost 6000 acres in the Shenandoah National Park. The fire is in the park's Southern District, about 50 miles to the south of where the photograph above was taken. Fire crews are working to contain the fire within park boundaries, and so far no structures have been affected.

Have a safe weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.
