PORTRAIT OF A FAMILY AND THEIR AUTOMOBILE (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

“I’m going up the country, babe, don’t you wanna go? I’m going to some place where I’ve never been before. I’m gonna leave this city, got to get away. All this fussing and fighting, man, you know I sure can’t stay”. These words are part of the lyrics of  “I’m Going Up the Country” by Canned Heat.  I think the song would be good accompaniment to this vintage photograph. This image shows what appears to be a family on a road trip. They are dressed for a nice drive. One of the women in the photograph is holding a bouquet of flowers which may indicate that she had just wedded. The most likely groom is the man standing in the forefront of the image. I have been told that the car in the photo is an early Ford (unconfirmed). This vintage photo is interesting because it tells an incomplete story that the viewer can use his or her imagination to complete. This photo measures about 5 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ and has no identifying information written on the reverse.
