The Pohlman Photographs

Jerry Hatfield #883 provided this marvelous selection of photographs from his collection, and Brent Dugan #85 fabricated the wonderful web page display. Together, these two spent hundreds of hours in assembling this historical journey through factory advertising photographs from the heyday of the Hummer-series bikes.   See Jerry's 1953 Model 165
