"T" - SHE WANTED TO TRAVEL
During the Fifties, my family seldom traveled other than driving an non air-conditioned car to nearby cities and states. We left early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the mid-day heat. Prior to one trip, Mother placed a huge block of ice in a pan and placed it underneath the car's interior fan in hopes the air would be cooler as the ice melted. I remember hoping someday my environment would expand - maybe I would even "fly" to other parts of the country.
