Description
 
The 12” x 9” spiral bound album begins with a dedication page followed by three maps, each with a route outlined in red ink. The first trip was from June 15 to 23 (1935) consisting of 1981 miles driven at an average cost per person of $25.00. This is followed by a daily log indicating where they ate and slept each day and the miles driven. This is followed by where they played tennis and gold, the mountain peaks they visited with elevation. Noted highlight – One flat (tire). The subsequent pages are structured with the location visited, followed by numbered captions that correspond to the mounted and numbered snapshots. Most locations have two (2) to four (4) pages of snapshots. Locations include Gettysburg, PA, Blowing Rock, NC, Natural Bridges VA, Endless Caverns – New Market, VA, Provincetown, and Cape Cod, MA. a. The next trip June 12 – 28, 1936 was 1,700 with gas and oil costing 23.61 at 16 miles per gallon in the Ford V8 named “Henry”. The next page is photos of Henry. Followed by various lakes in Maine including Moosehead and Wesserunsett, Indian Hill, Skowhegan, Downey Bros. Circus at Waterville, nature scenes from Cape Cod. b. As is known to happen by the third year, 1938 some of the enthusiasm had waned. The snapshots were mounted neatly, but no captions or trip information. This trip was most likely across northern Vermont and New York State. The page prior to the 1938 trip has photo hinges affixed, but there is no evident that photos were ever mounted on that page. Front cover detached but present. .
