Tony Gallagher Photography Blog bio picture

Welcome to Tony's Blog!

Having settled in Denver, Colo., after years of living and working as a professional photographer in New York City and San Francisco, I spend my days (and quite a few nights) taking pictures. My love for photography is more than a passion; it’s an obsession, and I’m constantly in search for the next story I can tell through my camera lens.

Nash cars in my neighborhood

Nash Motors had success in the early years of the automobile by selling middle class cars to middle class buyers. Nash was founded in 1916 by the former GM President Charles Nash, when he bought the Thomas B. Jeffery Company. The early success can be attributed to the engineer Nils Erik Wahlberg, who pioneered the use of wind tunnels in the design of automobiles.

Thomas B. Jeffery Company’s main automobile was the Rambler, which Nash continued successfully for many decades. In 1937, Nash became a controlling company to Kelvinator, a leading refrigerator and cooling company, renaming the business Nash-Kelvinator. Having the cooling business helped Nash lead the automotive industry in heating and cooling automobiles for a time.
