These photos are from a Buick press kit. As we battle to adjust in a changing world it can be helpful to remember there was a time when the changes were coming even faster and, perhaps, in an even more dramatic fashion.

It is the context and background in these photos that I found of interest. Imagine a time when flight was only a slightly more recent marvel than the automobile.

If you enjoy Jim Hinckley\'s America, take a second to support jimhinckleysamerica on Patreon!


Jim Hinckley's America is a grand adventure on the back roads and two lane highways. It is an odyssey seasoned with fascinating people, and memory making discoveries. As made evident by the publication of fourteen books on subjects as diverse as diverse as Ghost Towns of the Southwest, The Illustrated History of the Checker Cab Manufacturing Company, Travel Route 66, Backroads of Arizona, and The Route 66 Encyclopedia, I enjoy sharing adventures and helping people plan for their own memory making journeys.

Thank you, shared adventures are the best adventures.
