I initially grabbed it because of the sheer volume of people they managed to pack into the photo and of course the clothes. But there's a little history there as well, did a little research and it seems it's from the 1924 Republican National Convention in Minneapolis.

This little gem was hiding under a work bench in a basement and was completely filthy, I didn't even see the bomber painting on top till I got it back to the studio and wiped it down. I checked in with the National USAF museum and it turns out Capt.Tyndall was a P-47 pilot in the 19th Fighter Squadron who flew missions over Saipan from 1944-45.
This is going to be a fun little project, over all it's in pretty great shape for being pulled out of a barn. Did a little research on the brand, it seems like a lot of companies, they started out making motorized bicycles around and dropped the motorized versions around the 30's.
