Aww, Fred,

A peanut butter & jelly sandwich (or 3), a full tank of gas, depart around 6:00 AM and you would get there by lunchtime.

Antique chair

I know that it is at least 65 years old...just how old it is, and what it is for, I do not know.
"T", other make? Picnic chair? Running board chair? If you know, I'd like to know.
opened - about 22-24" tall X 14" wide. Folds to approx. 13" X 4" $150.00 plus postage
