Here is another of my old photos. Not sure what the other car is. My grandparents lived near Oilton Okla. at Yale Okla. from the teens and thru the depression era years. All that is written on the back is "auto wreck near Oilton Oklahoma"
Boy! There's not much left of those cars. BTW Donnie, my grandparents lived in Yale at that time as well.
That looks as though it may have been caused by a tornado.
Nope. A tornado wouldn't have left any leaves on those plants.
I think the wreck was caused by the T. He was probably going so fast he slung the tires off the rims and then lost control. At least that's my story and Im sticking to it......
Odd that no tires are on the T. No evidence of fire. Was that T on a trailer that wrecked?
If the tires were any good and the wreck was the day before, the tires probably disappeared overnight. Tires were very expensive back then, kinda' like buying them from Coker's now.
The other car still has rubber.
The other car would have had bigger tires. In Oklahoma at the time most of the cars would have been Ts. Most likely the T tires would have been the most needed. I do not know much about the pic. It has always been in grandmas pictures. She could not remember who or what happened. She always thought someone in the pic was kin to us but she was not sure who it was. Tornados do strange things. I do not think it likely that one would drop 2 cars that close together. On the old farm where grandma and grandpa lived at the time there is an old black oak tree that has a piece of roofing tin hanging out both sides of the tree trunk. Grandpa said "a cyclone came one day and tore the roof off the chicken coop and blew that piece of tin right threw that tree" He cut the tin off about a foot on both sides of the tree. It is still there today and the tree is still alive.
