On offer is an interesting 1921 travel diary commencing July 2, 1921 from Sioux Falls South Dakota east to Washington DC and as far south as North Carolina. Inscribed on the inside front cover are names and address of the author being the 'mrs' of Mr. and Mrs. Odean Hareid. It appears they are traveling in a convoy that includes the Grothe car and the Judges' car. Mrs H. is a super diarist detailing the legs of the journey, stops along the way, camp grounds, problems; '2 min. outside of Valparaiso on Yellow Stone Trail - making a sharp turn our car struck a telephone post broke a wheel to pieces and bent bumpers - Odean the only one hurt getting a cut in the head', and even opinions: 'Rotten Maude driving', 'the ladies had a dandruff picnic [went out in the snow] - took some photos', 'Springfield Ohio. Doubletrack streetcar, Interurban between all cities of any size.', 'Columbus, saw some real nifty policemen in this town', 'Had to scold Maude for trying to read while we were driving. The Judge thinks this is real smart when he passes us going up a hill'. Mrs. H fills this notebook with verbatim conversations involving 4 or 5 people at times. Very interesting balance of sightseeing notes and the fun repartee of this eclectic groups of friends. Diary is intact and complete but the cover is chipped and tatty and the spine is loose and cracked but still together. Super cross-country early automotive era diary.
