Selection page [4]. “Type XIV. Roadster, 30 Horse Power, $2,750”: The Autocar

This update brings a number of newly digitized materials to your attention. The final 28 parts of the Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church finish off the digitization of that important resource. Two photograph albums – one covering the cross-country road trip of 3 your Pennsylvania men during the summer of 1924 and another depicting the reunion trip of a group of World War I veterans back to the battlefields of Europe a year after the war concluded, were added this week. Of significance also is the creation of the Autocar collection of materials covering the Ardmore automotive company. In addition a few new story paper issues and two complete Philadelphia Ceili Group music workshops conclude this set of offerings!
