1922: R.C. MAXWELL MERCER AUTOMOBILE CO. SIGN ALONG LAWRENCE ROAD

Here's a truly rural country road from 90 years ago. Perhaps a knowledgeable Lawrence visitor can pinpoint the location. I am completely unfamiliar with the Lawrence Road. However, the old vehicle traveling toward us is apparently on a dirt road. I wonder if our resident auto historian Ray Paskiewicz can identify that truck?

Tom, this is near the current intersection with Carter Road, heading downhill toward the bridge over Shipetaukin Creek. The current high-level bridge was built a couple of years after this date, when the road was paved. In 1922, Lawrence Road crossed the creek at what is now the Fackler Road bridge.
