Date: c. 1911
Description: Photo of Dr. Tucker and Dr. Linder of Tennessee Colony in a 1911 Model T Ford. This particular car was made in a 56" tread width and a 60" tread. This one was the 60" tread which fit the ruts made by the Studebaker wagons used by the farmers. Dr. Tucker took the train to Dallas, bought the car, then drove it home after getting shown how to operate it. They lived 26 miles from the courthouse and it took 2 hours on an average to "drive in". It is said to be the first car to operate on the country roads of Anderson and Henderson County rural areas.
