This is a vintage photo of downtown Lanesboro. The first building on the left is now home to Mrs. B’s Inn. On July 20th, the view will be similar in as the National Model T car club tour makes a stop in Lanesboro. The club will be touring Southeast Minnesota during the week and parking their vintage cars all along Parkway Avenue for you to enjoy. More than 100 vintage cars are expected on the tour.
Model Ts are sometimes referred to as “tin lizzies.” These two sweethearts are enjoying their 2 door tin lizzy. This Model-T is an early-ish coupe, as it has rear-hinged “suicide” doors. Also note the two flags attached to the car’s radiator. A close look at the original photo shows a 1927 Minnesota license tag, or numberplate, with MINN (for Minnesota) down the right hand side of it.
I am sure the cars you will see in Lanesboro will be in as good or better shape. Make your visit to Lanesboro complete by staying in one of our many bed and breakfasts. The Hillcrest Hide-Away B&B is located three blocks from downtown Lanesboro. So you will be within walking distance of the car display. We hope to see you on July 20th.
