Photos: 1) Inside a car. John P. Scharle photo J.W. Thomas Collection
2) Air conditioned car on 42nd St. at 5th Ave. Bill Volkmer Collection. The 3rd Ave. had a lot of convertible cars which I jokingly call "air conditioned."
3) Unknown car signed for "West Farms" Frank Pfuhler collection. It looks like a joke.
