Our Daily Sykes #59 – The Road to Mt. Constitution

May Sykes have driven that Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe to the top of Mt. Constituion on Orcas Island? Yes, he might have. But is it General Motors' answer to Ford's revolutionary 1949 swept-fender model? I'm not sure? (As always - Click to Enlarge)
Another prospect from the road up Mt. Constitution, but not by Sykes. A real photo postcard artist named Jacobson recorded this and the two views that follow.
Near the beginning of the road up the mountain, the grand entrance into Moran State Park. This also by Jacobson.
The sandstone Observation Tower on top of 2,409-foot Mount Constitution was constructed in 1935 by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) working from plans of architect Elsworth Storey. Jacobson has signed this one too.
