Biography/HistoryCars were widely used by 1924, and especially popular with farm families. However, this map indicates the difficulty of traveling around the state, or even from the countryside to town, by automobile in the 1920s. Few roads were paved or graveled. Travel was slow and often impossible when muddy or snow drifted. Drivers had to be prepared to change tires often, perhaps as much as four times between farm and town when the roads were badly rutted.
