Mother's New Car

The four Raymo children and their mother Margaret's new car -- a Ford Model A, purchased for $746.50 on 23 October 1928 from the D. S. Etheridge Company of Chattanooga.


  1. What is Dad doing in uniform???

  2. I presume it is a ROTC uniform. In 1928, Chester was in his freshman year at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Arthur and Roger also appear to have been in ROTC while at UT as well.

  3. Rotc implies a commitment to service?? Weird to see Dad in uniform. He was handsome though - Susan
