Hubs and I chatted, trying to recall any photos we had of family or ancestors with their cars. After a half hour or more of hunting through folders on our two computers, we came up with the photos you see below. They start with hubs' great grandmother (in the hat) in her carriage going to town.
And they end with me in front of our new vehicle. It's fun to see the changes in cars and it makes me wish I'd taken more photos of all the cars I've owned in my lifetime and that my ancestors had done the same! My mom often talked about riding in the rumble seat of her dad's Model T. What I wouldn't give to have a picture of that.....
What photos do you have of ancestors and their cars?
Very early pre-car days!
