Fence Post Portrait #1/3

This is the first of three portraits taken beside this fence.  They were on a single strip of celluloid that hadn’t been cut into individual negatives.

I think with this we can finally establish the time period The UP worked in as late 40’s/early 50’s.  Can anyone identify the cars in the background?

    Hey, me again–actually, this is a 1949 or 1950 Chevy, not Buick–you can tell by the straight trim on the front fender (Chevy) as opposed to the round portholes (Buick):

    Good grief; I have too much trivial knowledge about 1950.

    Why did GM have to make all it’s cars look the same back then? It’s very confusing!
