We had a lovely reception committee awaiting us at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel–more about them tomorrow–but they asked us if we could steam downtown to old Flagstaff to meet some historians, Richard and Sherry Mangum, sho have written some wonderful and well researched books on Flagstaff history. They very kindly gave us three copies of their “Grand Canyon -Flagstaff, the Stage Coach Line” which includes Lippincott’s original trip in 1902 with the Toledo, that we hope to re-run starting on Tuesday.
Neil Weintrub, who had previously given us information about streams and tanks and water sources on the route, was also in town and kindly took these photos:
Along with us on the trip into Flagstaff and along the old stage coach trail is Alan Travis in his 1906 Darracq and he also bought along his 1903 Mitchell, very rare. Alan has a great collection of veteran cars.
(I have no idea how to get them copied onto here so you will have to link up yourselves directly!)
