Local 104 in LFP

By Diane Hettrick

We published this photo alongside one out of Judith Muilenburg's photo album (see previous article). Knowing there are many classic car buffs around, I asked readers to identify the car.

Responses were not unanimous. Chevy - yes, mid-1950s - yes. The specific year and model were more challenging but most said 1956 or 1957.

I checked with Local 104 and discovered that the mural artist was Andy Eccleshall of The Mural Works in Edmonds. Andy is the artist for the "Echo in Time" mural of Echo Lake history on the Holyrood wall by Ballinger Commons, across from Lake Ballinger.

So I went to the source and asked Andy what car it was. He had to look it up.

Andy says the car is a "stylized representation of a late 50s Chevy Impala wagon, though it could also be a Chevy Belair wagon or Chevy Brookwood wagon from the same era. There are a lot of similarities from the front. I've taken a few liberties with it though."

So apparently you are all correct. Good job!
