What Kind Of Airplane Is That?

Does anyone know what kind of airplane this is? It looks like some type of Aeronca but it is hard to tell. The photo is from the 1930's.

Where Is This?

Does anyone know where this aerial photo was taken? The picture is from the 1960's.

Thanks to local historian MikeM who recognized the photo as being taken from the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. The photographer is looking southwest over the tidal basin. The Potomac River is near the top of the photo. The current view is from Google Earth.

What Kind Of Car Is That?

Does anyone know what kind of car this is? The unusual location of the spedometer - in the middle of the dashboard - could be a clue to getting the car identified.
