1949 Chevrolet Ambulance and Our Brother’s Birthday

My sister Mary sent me these photos she took on her phone in NYC.

She texted the year- 1949. a very good year!

A Chevrolet Ambulance.  Looked up definition for the word Chevrolet and found Louis Chevrolet “a Swiss Born American Race Car Driver of French Descent”

I’ve been saving the photos to post for our brother David’s birthday today, also Flag Day.  (You might remember how bad I am at sending out a card in time.)

Happy Birthday David.  Thinking of you and hoping you have a wonderful day.

Love from your sisters,

Ruth and Mary

  7. What an ambulance! That was all steel without a bit of aluminum. I wonder what it weighed? I bet the ride was super smooth, though. Happy birthday wishes to your Brother!
