Summer Road Trip: Goldsboro to San Francisco

In June 1915, George Norwood and William Thompson set off for a cross-country road trip, driving from Goldsboro to San Franscisco in a 1912 Cadillac. These photos, from the Wayne County Public Library, show the two men and their car at the outset of the journey. They made it all the way to Ogden, Utah, where a broken axle forced them to give up driving and finish the journey by train. They returned home by boat, travelling through the recently-opened Panama Canal.
