Description: Frank Richards (The driver, identified as "Dad"), manager of the Star Well in Mineral Wells, sits in an automobile in front of the Crazy Flats sometime before 1912. Dust on the car, extra spare tires, and a sign on the spare, indicate they have just completed a "Pathfinder Endurance" run for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The driver and passenger are dressed in typical "duster" clothing for cross-country travel. A cigar sign in the window indicates this was the drug store, then located in the southeast corner of the Crazy Flats. A sign on the hotel also advertises rooms for rent in addition to its being a mineral water drinking pavilion.
