Vintage Pictures and Goodies from the 1930s

Camping in the 1930's was a big thing for the family. You will see a Clipper at Del Mar, CA, Wally, my parents and friends spent time there.

Also you will see a Torpedo, and Airlite at Del Mar.

My Mother modeled the "Byam Shower" at Wally's home on St. Andrews Place.

You hae a 1940's registration for a 1932 Airstream.

And Wally's pre-war Business card.

As you can see things don't change. Airstream's have always been used to have fun, and Wally always, always used his product. He knew from the get-go what an Airstream was to be used for. Fun, happiness and companionship.

Nice pics. Thanks for sharing them with us. My favorite is the 2nd to the last one on the left column above the AIRSTREAM plaque. That is a basic set up. Todays camping requires alot more stuff. Thanks again

Thanks for the posts! My parents knew nothing from camping they worked and worked. Brought up on the East coast most familes we knew never even took a holiday. Those of us that can go on the road today need to remember that we are all blessed.

Blinds

Gail, this picture was taken around 1978, 1979 at Dodger Stadium. The really big West Coast Trailer show was held there for many years.

Airstream brought this Old Timer for display with their, then, current models.

With the Venetian Blinds intact from the original production.

Pee Wee these pictures are wonderful as is the memorbilia such as the cards. If you put this into books, they would be flying off the shelves. you are very kind to share this with all of us.

I saw that Clipper at the Jackson Center Museum at Homecoming in June of 2004. I loved the "brows." I had never seen anything like it. Very cool. One thing I learned about it and took note of was that the fenders over the wheels could be completely removed for changing the tires.

If anyone is interested in seeing the current condition of this clipper and it's interior I have pictures of it posted here.

I know U are not old enough to remember but they are Called FENDER SKIRTS. I had them on all my cars when I was young, and don't give me that stuff about "I didn't know the put Fender Skirts on BUGGIES" either.

I enjoyed a long conversation with Pee Wee last evening. We discussed his coming to the Texas Vintage Rally Feb 4-8th. He will be conducting multiple seminars in which he will be sharing a lot of photos and memorabilia from his mother's estate such as these at the rally. Come join us.

One of the neatest things about the Clippers to me, IIRC, was that all the side windows rolled up and down via hand crank just like car windows...that is like car windows used to. Now they all have little buttons you push to make the windows go up and down. My kids honestly didn't know there was such a thing as manual windows 'till we went to a vintage car show!

Thumbs up Gotta Love the Vintage Stuff

One thing we can all be thankful for this Thursday is how generous Pee Wee is in his willingness to share bits of his family’s history.
I’ll be lifting a glass to you tomorrow, sir.
I was particularly interested in the photo of the Torpedo. This is the first time I’ve seen one with what appears to be straight, instead of curved, front corners. Additionally it looks like the front tilts backwards instead of remaining vertical. The tongue could be a big ol’ pipe bent in a "S" curve.
As to the paint scheme, one can only imagine the colors.
Thanks for sharing.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone,
Tom.
