Tom Roehm's Car Fixing Blow Out in Livingston KY

IN 1928, blow outs with tires were still common. Here the second car of the caravan is stopped in the town of Livingston KY. Two local boys look on as the tire is changed in front of a steel bridge. I like the feel of how is must have been on the road. The group of seven traveled to the mountains of the Great Smokies and then to the monuments of Washington DC and Virginia. I am struck by the openness of the country and the few cars on the road back then. Elwood was quite the adventurer and embraced new technology. I am grateful for his many photos.
