women sitting in a car in front of the belmont theater

Two young women sitting in a car in front of the Belmont Theater in Chicago, Illinois, 1927. The marquee for the Belmont is visible in the background, advertising jazz music performances, boxing matches, and films (Harold Lloyd, King and King, Eddie Clark, Johnny Herman, Art Kahn, Prosper and Maret and Lon Chaney). Text on image reads in part: 1900 Model A brass car (this wouldn't be correct however, Model T's were made from 1909 to 1927, and the Model A debuted in 1927).
