  2. Fun ad Ardis. Om my computer I jave scanned images from a g-g-grandfather’s journal from a couple of years before this. It is titled “ZCMI Automobile Experiment” For severe weeks he recorded his experience as ZCIM’s first employee to deliver orders with a car. There is not much there, mostly miles driven and technical issues, but it’s a fun snapshot of life from a technologically different time.
