Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Old photo - 3 Miles to Falcon

Got this in a pile of stuff at an auction in Platte City Missouri a few weeks ago and thought I would share it;

Snapshot of a gent posing alongside his Model T touring car on a snowy/muddy road. Sign behind him reads " 3 Miles To Falcon, Oil-Gas-Water-Tires"

Not sure where the photo is from. I know there is a Falcon, Missouri and a Falcon, Colorado. I can't decipher the state on the license plat, but the number is 214-572.

That 3 mile walk for gas will be nothing compared to the 30 mile walk uphill both ways when he was a school kid.

Falcon, MO, is in an area that is very hilly, with lots of trees. However, there are are some ridge top area near there that are rather flat. SO, I guess it's possible. MO-32 highway was constructed about 1932, but it would have been a gravel road then. I guess it was just an unnumbered dirt road going to Falcon before 1932.

I have no idea what the terrain of Falcon, CO, is like.

Just about dead center in Colorado, but east of a he Rockies. Probably pretty flat
