Sunday Drive: Thomas/Grenfell/Currey

The grandma being driven around in this awesome car was Grace Thomas Grenfell Stanton, the Welsh-born grandmother of Bernice Evangeline Grenfell Currey, the mother who raised me (and is the driver here). 
[From Currey photograph album in my private collection.]

Although the caption to this photo refers to the "new piercearrow" it actually looks like a 1927 Model 80 to me. Bought while Harold Currey was working at the plating shop, he was able to buy a second car (and other things too) because he stayed employed during the entire Great Depression.
