Charlotte County, New Brunswick

from the poet & naturalist Brian Bartlett: "You were asking for car photos. Well here’s one over half a century old, from the early 1940s, taken during my father’s youth in Bartletts Mills, Charlotte Country, New Brunswick. My oldest cousin says that the second car from the right is the “Ford Sports Coupe” (1942?) that her father bought as his first car. He met his future wife at a Ford dealership in Fredericton where she was working. Sounds like it might’ve been a case of “You go to buy a car and find a wife as well.""-BB  

(My guess: the Ford is a '47. And perhaps our last post from the Picture Province was from Cape Cocagne and Caissie Cape a couple years back. Then there was that Plymouth from Hawaii--no, it was '62 Dart--for sale in Shediac )
