Photo Flashback Week, Day 3
Welcome to Wednesday. I found so many good photos in the file marked "Automobiles: Drivers: Tests" that I couldn't choose just one.
This photo was published on Nov. 20, 1936, with this caption: Capt. Rhoda J. Milliken, of the Women's Bureau of the Metropolitan Police, left, Mrs. John Jay O'Connor, a member of the Women's Safety Committee of the Motor Club, and Mrs. Eugene V. Pugh, the "victim" of the testing device, one of several demonstrated at the tea yesterday at the Sulgrave Club.
There was no caption information on the back of our next photo, so I can't tell what year it was taken. The "testing device" looks a little more advanced:
Finally, here's a photo from 1961:
The caption on the back reads: This is the private room (with the door opened) where certain drivers license applicants take reaction test. Reaction test is given to those over 70 and applicants for new licenses after revocation. Charles Wallace ... takes the test with permit examiner Francis Wells, right, observing.
Have a funny caption for any of these photos? Post it in the Comments section below.
