Asphalt roads were a rarity and repairs
frequent during the pioneer cross-country drive of Alice Huyler Ramsey in 1909. Shown here
changing a tire on her green Maxwell, Ramsey was a 22-year-old resident of Hackensack when
she made the 3,800-mile transcontinental trip from New York City to San Francisco.
