Dignity!

I saw scenes like this in the late 40s, after the war, in North and South Carolina.

No seat belts; no air bags; no back rest, although the two ladies do appear to be sitting on a coat for a bit of cushioning.

See the piece of wood sticking out just above the rear axle? It's a place to hang a lantern at night.

Going to Town

This is one of 70 photographs in the "Bound for Glory" exhibit now showing at The Grace Museum in Abilene TX. The exhibit depicts color photographs taken during the years 1940-44 during a government-sponsored project to document in pictures Americsn urban life in the post-Depression era. It was a fantastic exhibit! Will be available here through mid-January.
