Transportation > Flat Tire
It was 12 miles to Bronson when this auto driver was luckless enough to have a flat tire on the sandy road. The flat tire was occasion enough for other menfolk to stop their wagons or autos and come to chat with the man changing the tire. The sign on the tree over the heads of the group reads "Bronson 12 miles"—so the scene probably was taken around Williston, Otter Creek or some other community about 12 miles from Bronson. This vintage photo, from an old glass plate that turned up in the collection of a Gainesville photographer, probably was taken in the early 1920s.
