Last week we asked: "Can You Identify the Make of this Car?" Both Jennifer S. and Scot Donald thought it was a Pope. An email from "cmrusso" also said this car was a Pope: "The car is a Pope Hartford Touring Car manufactured in Hartford Conn. around 1911. There is a restored one on display in the AAA Office on Farmington Avenue here in town."
Ray Charpentier guessed a Packard. "Just to be different," David Ginton guessed a Winton, which he said was a really obscure car company.
Sorry to say that no one guessed correctly. According to the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society, "West Hartford resident William H. Nichols is seen sitting in his Buick Automobile which was the second car to be owned in town. The car had gas lights and a right hand steering wheel."
