A black and white photo of a Florida traveler's car on a country road early in the 1900s. This is the quote written on the back of the picture: "Another lonely road into the back country. To cope with road emergencies I had to always carry an ax (to put palmetto fans for a bed in the sand), a rope (to weave in and out around the tire for traction) and a variety of paraphernalia."
