This scene had perhaps already become an old joke by the time this print appeared. The dashing horse-and-buggy glides by the stalled automobile. The frustrated driver of the latter has already removed his coat and is holding a dilapidated innertube in his hand, while the woman holds a pump ready for action. The outer tire lies on the road with some tools. Good fun!
