They are a remarkable set of pictures Mike ,especially the ones taken in the machine shop where you can see some of the various jigs and fixtures needed to hold the parts for machining operations. Each and every jig had to be designed, drawn and accurately made before "production" could begin. Eventually all of it would have ended up as scrap metal. Glad we have some pictures saved.

The photos are from the Philadelphia Public Library Automobile collection - best I can tell is that the newspaper received press releases from certain manufacturers. And, my guess is there may be more if willing to look photo by photo through collection.

Thanks. I notice in the picture of the L-29's lined up at least 5 don't have cowl lights.

Mike, plenty of L-29 Drawings on site. Use "Cord" as a search engine and I want to say a few came up under Auburn too.
