Well, this is a little girl..with idiot mittens posing for a photo with a pedal car. I think that the pedal car is a Fire Chief..I couldn't find any pedal cars exactly like this one to date the photo..but I am guessing that this is the 1940's. Most pedal cars we made for children six to eight years old.. this little girl looks older than that..who ever got it as a gift was very lucky..perhaps it was for her little brother.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update: Feb 01, 2011 someone stopped by and left a comment: It looks like a Garton "Hot Rod" pedal car. These were manufactured from 1952 into the 1960's. The bell was probably added on.
