Car in the Desert

Today's picture shows a group of men in the Desert of Arabia in an automobile. The picture was taken in 1926. I love pictures like this that have a mix of the old world, and the encroachment of technology on an old way of life. Something sort of sad to me about these types of pictures. 


  1. Neat photo, I like the lighting. I wonder how hard it was to find gas for a fill up?

  2. Great tires, I love old cars.

  3. Looks like thay were out for a long trip. Seems like there is a suitcase wired to the side of the car. Like Anon, I wonder where the extra gas is kept. Those old cars did not get very good milage due to the rather primative machanics of the day.
