The first 2 Pictures are Mary in 1939 at age 17 in Decatur, GA .... she had just graduated High School and purchased her ELGIN at Sears and Roebuck Dept. Store on Ponce De Leon Blvd in Atlanta (building is STILL there ..... and now known as "Ponce City Market" !)
The 2nd two pictures are 2 weeks ago (9/03/19) and Mary is now 97 years old .... and I JUST finished restoring her bike for her!
**** 80 Years Later she STILL Loves her 39 Elgin .... and it rides like new again! (she doesn't plan on riding it though, at age 97)
It is on display in her foyer at her beautiful house in N. GA ....
(NOTE: she chose the Turquoise Color herself) as the factory-original color was a slightly darker AQUA or Teal ...
CHEERS!! CCR Dave
