I don't know anything about this car. Another Brownie shot, luckily for me, with notes on the back. Is Ellis the producer of "Evans Denver" steering boxes?

JimmyK, I believe Evans was the steering box manufacturer, he ended up with a Kurtis Offy that became the Foss Campbell #4, I'll put some pic's up on the Ellis Evan's KK when I get a chance. Here's one of Foss in the #4. Never seen that car before, does it say where that shot was taken?

There's nothing else on the original other than a name and the year. Any help to ID the car would be appreciated. I didn't know he owned Foss' car... Joe would I'm sure.

Also, looking through one of Mom's albums I found a couple of nice shots of Duchess. One seated in the Buzzard Taxi #6 and one posed with Johnie Tolan. I'll get these scanned soon and post to pay tribute. Without photos from Dutchess studios, we wouldn;t have much of a collection!

Here's Evan's Kurtis Offy.

Foss in the Ellis Evans Kurtis, after Campbell bought the car.
Again, thanks to Bill Hill and his great book, "Decades of Daring"
