Dated March 3, 1913 Kenosha WI this image likely documents a scene from the innovative Thomas Jeffrey (by then, his son Charles T. Jeffrey) company that sold to Nash in 1916. With innovative car designs (like the Rambler) that early adopted steering wheels and front mounted engines, this assembly line idea had only been seen at Olds a few years before while this image predates Ford’s famous rolling line by 6+ months. RPPC measures 3.5 x 5.5”, heavily stained and soiled with heavy gelatin. Message on reverse in a Slavic language. Incredible evidence.
