(ROCKWALL, TX — November 6, 2019) The DFW Lonestar Ts club came to Rockwall as part of their trip (stroll) on Saturday, Nov. 2, making a stop at Divine Peace Church on Fannin Street. After having lunch there a few of the members took advantage of a photo shoot opportunity with the church in the background. The church building is the same vintage as these Ford Model Ts since it was constructed in October of 1916. Ford made the Model T from 1909 – 1927.
One of the cars in attendance was built at the same time as the church — its serial number dates it as being made in fall of 1916. So if these photos were changed to black & white you get an idea of what a scene in Rockwall might have looked like “back in the day” in Rockwall in the teens or twenties!
