Lou Ann recently discovered this undated photo from a coastal newspaper. I am guessing the picture was taken in the 1940s on Hatteras Island. I thought our readers would enjoy seeing what travel conditions were like on the Outer Banks three quarters of a century ago.
The caption reads, "Every man is a road builder on the Banks. Here the first car off to the ferry in the morning blazes a trail across the beach. Others follow in the tracks he makes."
