Warning: The originals photos, texts, films, music, etc ... of the period previous to 1921 year -see the Act of the US Congress about it - have no copyright and belong to the public domain. However, those same pictures, I process this blog, when I restore and paint the pictures, then the right of modification is produced, ie that are protected by full copyright law, in this case mine. Of course there are many more laws in the world, declared in the public domain photographs (which is the topic at hand), in very later dates to the aforementioned (Example: WWII, Korea, etc ...) .

U.S. Simplex Armored Car, 1915.

U.S. Simplex Armored Car of 1915

The armored car was performed on the chassis of the Toy Tonneau Simplex 4 Passenger 1913 model. The ceramic license plate indicates that this is 1915. Given that license plates of American civilian’s vehicles, at that time, were granted and renewed annually, this indicates that the photograph was made in 1915. This characteristic car license plate (dark with clear numbers and date vertically to the right), reduced to 5 or 6 U.S. states that could belong to this Simplex Armored Car in 1915. The civil right is probably a journalist, so that the photograph corresponds to the public presentation of this armored car.

On identifying this vehicle can see this post of Landships. In it you can see two different ways to confront this issue of identification of an armored car: the one precipitated and erroneous and the other reasoned and correct.

Coche Blindado Simplex norteamericano de 1915

Este coche blindado fue realizado sobre el chasis del modelo Simplex Toy Tonneau 4 Passenger de 1913. La placa cerámica de la matrícula nos indica que ésta es de 1915. Dado que las matrículas en esa época eran concedidas y renovadas anualmente, se deduce que la fotografía fue realizada en 1915. Esta característica matrícula (oscura con los números claros y la fecha en vertical a la derecha) reduce a 5 ó 6 los estados norteamericanos a los que podría pertenecer este Coche Blindado Simplex en 1915. El civil de la fotografía probablemente sea un periodista,  por lo que ésta correspondería a la presentación pública del  coche blindado.

Sobre la identificación de este vehículo podéis ver este post de Landships. En el podréis observar dos formas diferentes de enfrentarse a la cuestión de la identificación de un coche blindado: una precipitada y errónea y la otra razonada y correcta.
