Not a 'flivver' (Model T Ford)

In fact, it looks pretty substantial, if a bit time-worn. But what is it?

That old flivvver

Most were lucky enough to have an old flivver. Some had to walk with what they could carry.

BTW... tterrace - loved your comment.

They were going in that old flivver?

I hope there was a better car out of view on the right. That one looks as if it couldn't even make it to the nearest general store.

[Rothstein felt that showing the butler packing the Duesenberg would spoil the effect. - tterrace]
