1920s Spencer Family Road Trip

Today we’re going to take a look at some pictures Guy Spencer took during a road trip he took with his family in the 1920s. I believe they drove from Nebraska to Colorado. The pictures certainly look like they were taken in the Colorado Rockies. If you look closely you can see Frances (my grandmother) and Dorothy (my great-grandmother) in a couple of the pictures. I can’t imagine what a road trip would’ve been like almost 100 years ago. No air conditioning, limited roadside accommodations, shoddy roads, but beautiful scenery. Let’s take a journey :)
