Flashback: Local history in photos

Charles Robinson and Andrew Neureuther sit in their cars with their families circa 1908. Lorena Robinson, of La Salle, writes of the photo: "One of (the cars) belonged to my husband's great- grandfather. The automobile dealers loved him because he always wanted the newest and the best. They both have tops that go down. I can see why the ladies had to protect their hair. I doubt if they drove them in the winter no heater. ... One of the owners was Charles Robinson, who lived on a farm north of La Salle, and the other belonged to a friend." Lorena Robinson said she is interested in learning what make and model cars are shown in the photograph. Anyone with information can call her at 815-223- 8052. "I'm hoping this will help me solve the mystery," she said.
