On what appears to be a brand spanky new factory hillclimber..... Thanks for the clarification on the whereabouts Chris.
Youngsters confronted by the "man"....
That copper is riding a very interesting bike. It looks like a 41 or 42 four - with the '46 style tank badge and strip. It's been argued that 42's had that tank emblem, but I've never seen a period picture before that showed it. Thanks Cory.
Very cool photo Cory, thanks I enjoyed that :-)
I received these pictures from the gentleman who sold me my DL (see Motorcycles Then and Now thread). Beauvais was the dealership where he bought the DL in 1933. He had been given these photos many years later by Henry Beauvais. The shop (building still exists) is 181Whittenton St., Taunton, Ma.

This picture is dated on the back "1915 or 1916." Perhaps someone can say for sure. It appears to be a gathering of customers, perhaps for a weekend ride or an event. There are definitely some folks in Indian shirts who look ready for a race!

This picture has a description on the back. On the left is Henry Beauvais, the dealer, on a 1916 Indian K that was apparently called "Featherweight." See the next picture for more detailed caption.
