I've been studying this photo and the car at left sure looks a lot like a 31-33 Auburn 8 cylinder Brougham. I'd love to hear thoughts on that and also help with dating this photo. There is a newer car partially visible though the people on the right side of the photo. anyone know what that might be?

Photo was taken in Como, CO and highlights the railroad depot and hotel. All help appreciated!

Here is a link to a high resolution scan of the photo for better viewing than the forum will allow: http://www.justinkerns.com/ACD/Como-date-unknown.jpg

Looks like 1931 8-98 Brougham or 1932 8-100 or 1933 8-101. r

Thanks Randy - that's what I thought. The other car almost looks to me like it's also an Auburn - maybe an 851 or 852? Identifying it would really help date the photo. The tracks were removed in 38 so I know it's between 31 and 38.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Curt - awesome information! Thanks a lot for the help in identifying the other car. Now we know for sure the photo was taken between 1935 and 1938 and in the springtime.
