Americana on 4 Wheels
By: Chris W. |  Setting: Carpentersville, IL  |  Date:  Tuesday, June 28, 1960
If Norman Rockwell could have designed a wagon I don’t think he could do better than the Radio Flyer. It is Americana on 4 wheels. The Flyer in the background of this photo of my brothers in 1960 did service for 11 kids and survived everything we could dream of throwing at her. She carried everything from Barbies to bricks. She was a go-cart and a grocery cart. A spaceship and a magic carpet. This picture wouldn’t be complete without her.
