In this photo, probably taken in 1909, Florence Hunt (1869-1951), left, and her sister-in-law, Alpha Bet Morrison (1886-1953), take Alpha’s kids for a pretend drive in the early Model T touring car owned by Alpha’s husband, A.P. Morrison. Alpha and A.P.’s son, Verd Morrison of Hollister, said Sunday he thinks the little girls in the backseat are twins Lola and Nola Morrison, born in 1906, and the boy at the steering wheel is probably Afton, the Morrisons’ oldest (born in 1905), while baby Lloyd, born in 1909, is held by his mother. Verd thinks the photo was probably taken near Zanoni, where the Morrisons lived, and he speculates that Florence or one of the men standing on the porch may have ridden the horse, at left, to visit his family. The photo is from the collection of the late Reva Luna Miller and was shared by Jan and Mark Miller.
