JESS WOMACK'S MODEL T FORD CAR SWAMPED IN CREEK BACK SHOT 1912
Not 1912. Car has 1914 windscreen.
Allan from down under.
And 15+ rear fenders too.
looks like he is assuming the position?
What a lazy way to pan for gold.
This is a good reason for not wearing a tie when checking out a spinning wheel.
Swelling up the spokes.
The next photo would have been of him falling into the water.... had the camera man not been laughing his a$$ off.
He didn't need to assume the position. He's already screwed.
I wish I could find a picture of my Grandparents on their honeymoon. Being pulled out of a mud road with a team of mules. And She stayed married for 60 years !
I'm guessing that's the female half of the duo on the right edge of the photo with her hand on her hip....I can only imagine what she is saying!
What do you think? He had been out doing an early version of four wheeling in a two wheel drive Model T and got stuck in the creek. May be he got the commutator wet?
