I'm sure Louie was thinking about how fast the times were changing. Automobiles, indoor plumbing, electric lights. Even the car has electric lights. What is this world coming to?

Forget the technology. I think he was looking at the photographer and thinking, "30 years ago I'd hang your scalp on my belt!"

The 1913 T was parked across the street from the IOOF building at 345 N. Broadway in Burns.



They have rolled up the wood plank sidewalks since Old Louie left.

Neat photo. No bead on the turtle.

Notice the radius on the top. A lot of '13 roadster tops are lacking on this detail.

Jay,
Great photo once again, but I wonder why these photos were taken.
I did a bit of snooping and found an obit for Lloyd Lawrence Louie 1936-2013, Burns Oregon.

That looks a bit too late so I kept going and found the obit for his father Jimmie Louie 1896-1961

Seems as though the man in the photo was a Piute Chief which would explain why someone wanted to capture his photo for history's sake, the great looking T was just in the right place at the right time.
Thanks again,
Kevin

Kevin,

I'd even go back another generation to Jimmie's father.

Jay: The great Floyd Climer referred to a well known American Indian who lived in the early Model T years by the name of Louis Papa. He referred to him as "...the beloved Indian of the Rockies." I wonder if this is the same man.

Kyle,
I believe you are right, that would put the age about correct if the T was relatively new,
Thanks again,
Kevin
