    That first picture reminded me of what my daughter-in-law’s grandmother told us about camping in the 1920s. Her parents left Bucks County for a week of camping at Atlantic City in a car just like that one. They had 5 flats along the way. (That’s about a flat every 15 miles.) They carried live chickens in crates on top of the car! I bet they looked like the Beverly Hillbillies
