|Rear lights are very unique.|
Also unique at this show was a Gardner. I'll confess I'd never heard of Gardner, and I had to get Googling on this one! You can find more info on the Gardner line at Wikipedia, or this Gardner website: GARDNER MOTORCARS
They were built in St. Louis, and the family had previously been a big builder of wagons, and then Chevrolet's. At one time, a Gardner automobile held the record for driving across the country. They produced cars from 1920-1931.
