Photo and memories courtesy of Oscar M. Bilharz
The photo was taken of my grandfather OMB (Oscar Max Bilharz) in Rivermines MO about 1914
before he moved to Baxter in '15. He is sitting on the running board of his (1913?) Moon which
looks well used. Check that right rear tire? This car is a RH drive - most US cars
went to LH drive about 1915.
(Editor's note: The Bilharz property was on the North
Edge of Baxter Springs, KS.
Oscar Max founded the Bilharz Mining Company, which had many mines in Ottawa County.)
