You got it, Pontiac! A #folklorephoto from South River

Today's folklore photo comes to us courtesy Mary Hutchings. It shows Mary Hutchings (née Dunn) and her father Edwin Dunn. It was taken on the street now known as Springfield Road in South River. In the photo, Mary is around 4 years old, her Dad is about 39. If you look close, you can see a third person hidden in the back seat of the Pontiac, their face obscured, but their right arm hanging over the back of the front seat.  Some car enthusiast out there surely knows the model and year of that car. Let us know!

Photo collected as part of the "Lassy Days Photo Scanning Pary" held Wednesday, August 8th, 2018 at the Wesley Gosse Heritage Museum. If this photo elicits memories for you, or if you'd like to arrange a photo scanning party for your community, contact Dale Jarvis at
