Young Subscriber Has Some Questions
Fifteen-year-old subscriber Joshua Nace, 5540 Board Rd., Mount
Wolf, PA 17347, sent us this picture of himself at the throttle of
Harry Bechtold’s 1921 9 x 10 Frick. Joshua also is learning

Buffalo Springfield roller.
Joshua is interested in hearing what people think about the
