Early Ford Registry
This is a "Springtime in Minnesota" photo. Light jackets, top down, and not too much mud. And so the race is on!
The guy on the racing wheelbarrow is my great uncle Ted Bjerkan.
The picture was taken at his house in Osakis, Minnesota in 1914 according to the back of the picture.
The 1907 Model R is easy to spot because it has running boards and the larger 30 X 3 wheels.
This is one of a group of pictures that came from my great aunt Ida, Ted's wife.
There are lots of car pictures, almost all Fords. We have strong Ford DNA in the family tree!
