Traveling by pony cart, 1985

Posted on April 4, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Elizabeth and Gordon King of Boon’s Camp in Johnson County rode along Ky. 60 between Paintsville and Inez in a cart pulled by their pony, Roscoe, on April 24, 1985. The Gordons didn’t own a car and used the cart to collect aluminum cans along the road. He said he didn’t make much money from the cans, but “it’s enough to buy cigarettes.” Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
