Camping at Yellowstone... Yes, and they're both wearing ties. Notice the woman is also wearing slacks? Scandalous!!!!!!!

Looks like "plus fours" (knickers in the USA), or breeches, appropriate attire for both men and women when camping (and quite comfortable also!).
Great photo Jay! Car looks almost new. White sidewalls, and the top rear curtain is interesting. It makes me wonder if the car could be Canadian, but those windows were offered as after-market in the USA also, and the front license plate is not the typical Canadian mount.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Roughing it with a buttoned up collar and tie.

It's indeed a Canadian T since it had the typical Canadian windshield with an opening lower pane. Accessory Peerless radiator shroud, I can't really tell whether it's high or low style?

AH the joys of camping...When they were at home they cooked on a wood stove and ran out back to the outhouse...Now that their camping they cook on a wood fire and run to the outhouse...the only difference is they have wood wall at home and canvas walls when they camp.

Roger, good eye on the Peerless. I think I see the low radiator lower trim strip. All the Peerless radiators I have seen have been the low ones. Have you seen any high ones?
They had much less traffic in those days. Auto travel was in it's 8th year there. Yellowstone and the other Parks are still wonderful places to drive an old car.

Two pictures of my grandfather. One was camping at Lake Arrowhead. The other was build a stone wall at a cabin he built in Big Santa Anita Canyon. He had to hike in 5 miles to the site of the cabin, but he's wearing a tie in both pictures.

Happy motoring,

I never saw either of my Grandads in a short sleeve shirt or without sleeves buttoned down and collar buttons done up. KGB
