See what happens when you don't drive a Ford:
It's a cute little Roadster. The trio are making it difficult to identify. The attire of driver and passenger stand out next to the outfits the helpers are wearing.
This does tell a story.
Thats the fanciest dern buggy we ever did see! You folks aint from round here is ya?
Buick model 10
Agreed. It's a 1908 Buick Model 10. Unusual to see one in an original photo with the top up and side curtains.
I think the teamster has done this before.If one looks at the rope tied so it can pull on two points of the car instead of one.A nice team with britchen's on the harness! If the spot in the road is bad enough this might be done over and over? Bud.
I'm guessing it broke down, or ran out of gas.
I don't see any mud on the tires, under the fenders, or on anybody's shoes.
But yes, if you had a "bad spot" in the lane near your farm, it could supply you with some extra income- so much so, you MIGHT be tempted to keep it in that condition by adding a few buckets of water now and then.....
First time I remember seeing the mother-in-law included in the picture.
