    This is a new photo to me, anyone ever see it before?


    Hi Ed, I haven’t seen it. For some reason I can’t enlarge the photo, but I do notice the fella’s head gear on the horses do not make them as locals in DC-ha. I also find it interesting it looks like canvas tire covers not metal.

    Thanks for posting it-John


    The photo was taken in Canada, the side mount covers I also picked up on, and how about that crown on the front bumper. Ed


    below is a list of the times that FDR visited Canada, obviously the first in 1933 would not be applicable, so it had to be one of the other visits…it was probably #2 or #3 in the list below, as those visits list the person of note that he visited….

    here you go, Ed, complete with video!!!



    Nifty research David.-thanks for the info!


    Dave, your the best! Ed


    It has an archer, with a flag holder behind it. It has two flags flying.


    Has anyone done any research into that happened to all the white house Pierce arrows ? You would think there are still records as to when they were sold and to who. With a history of being a white house car they would be well cared for or at least one would hope so. Doug Vogel
