Paul was in North Philadelphia, perhaps on a visit connected to Church, or perhaps he had just moved there.Â
Paul sent a postcard to his friiend William J.S. Harvey in Flemington, New Jersey.
Flemington is the county seat of Hunterdon County, which lies onÂ the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, southwest of New York City.Â The boroughÂ remained the center of an agricultural areaÂ in 1921.Â It was the wild scene of the trial of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping case in 1935,
The postcard featured a picture of Independence Hall.
It seems that Paul's first love was automobiles, not history.
PaulÂ wrote to his friend, William Harvey, about the cars that he has seen.
Â Dear Wm
Having fine meeting at Church.
North Broad good place to see all kinds cars and exhibits of them.
Even see a Dupont.
Carlisle and Dauphin Street
The Dupont was a rarity, even for 1921.Â The Dupont Company was founded as a gunpowder manufacturing enterprise on a dam of the Brandywine River shortly after the American Revolution.Â The firm expanded into other products, and made engines for the US military during World War I.
In 1919, the company began producing luxury cars.Â They were sold to wealthy individuals who received personal driver training from DuPont executives.
Only 516 cars, of all models, were produced by DuPont between 1919 and 1931, when the market for luxury cars evaporated and the company ceased producing automobiles.
Thus, Paul had reason to consider his sight of a DuPont to be noteworthy.
This is a 1921 DuPont
