I make no claim to being the photographer behind either of these photos, but they are two of the most interesting transportation photos I have on my hard drive. The first is a calender photo from the 1922 calendar distributed by the Doniphan Lumber Company of Doniphan, Missouri, which logged much of North Arkansas in the 1920's. The mule driver is my great-grandfather.

The other is from 1929 and is a picture of the first automobile in our family. The proud owners are my grandparents and the sweet little girl is my mother, who recently turned 80.

(Both photos are simple scans with no post-processing.)

Great historical shots. Makes you really wish sometimes that you were around to take some of these.

During my very early years in Jamaica, I can remember riding a 1-mule team cart occasionally as transportation.
