I've heard partying passengers in the US has to conceal their bottles better today to avoid being stopped by the police.

It looks like the highway to K-falls over the green springs.

Can anyone tell what the license plate says? I like this picture because you see darn few photos taken from the rear!

Notice the horse "apples" in the road....
Looks like they just passed the other car (taking the photo) maybe the law with a dash cam....

I don't understand all the power poles. Those wouldn't have been on Green Springs Hiway.

Looks more to me like the hill on the right is just east of downtown. That would be Bear Creek in the valley ahead and left. I was born in a house next to a rock crusher on Bear Creek.

Here's a later pic that was posted here:


Glenview Drive

It looks like Bear Creek has really flooded?

The poles on the left are telephone poles. In those days they had, "open wire". Each circuit took two bare wires with insulators on the many crossarms. That was probably a '"toll lead" which connected exchanges in different cities or towns. The poles on the right are power poles used for local electricity. Over far to the right looks like a railroad track. The poles along the track carried the railroad telegraph lines.

It looks like a 13-14 rear end.
The front fenders look wide?
Not a wide track is it?

Judging by the shadows and the fact that they appear to be drinking, the hill may be on the west side of the T in the pic, Ralph and they are headed north. The length of shadows leads me to believe it is mid to late afternoon...unless of course, they were enjoying a snort or two for breakfast in which case they could be headed north and that hill is indeed on the east side...
