Description: "The steel ribbon is now flung across Nevada's sizzling waste of Alkalai, where the '20-mule team' formerly held sway, and Death Valley is annihilated by the 'T. and T.' railroad, which means in plain English 'Tomopah and Tidewater Railway. Our picture is of an auto with flanged wheels running between Ryan and the borax mines."
Location is on the DVRR, in California and the 1912 Cadillac is heading down to DVJ. Picture by Harry, possibly J. Ryan and wives in car. - Ed.
