These images from the April 3, 1924, issue of The Rolfe Arrow aren’t nearly as juicy as the 1914 Arrow ad I included in the last post. Yet, in this day and age it is hard to believe that once upon a time a brand new automobile could be purchased for $295.

    Slim Davidson is the earliest owner I remember. We might have to check the Pocahontas County and Rolfe histories.
