I had a chance this past weekend to visit the Flying A Classic Car Club Museum in Albany, TX. Owned by twin brothers Donnie and Ronnie Anderson, the museum holds a number of vintage cars from the 1950s through the 1970s. The brothers own about 115 cars total, far more than the museum will hold, but they rotate cars in and out every few months so visitors always have something new to look at. It's a gem of a place and was definitely worth the time to visit. Here are a few of my favorite images:
The museum holds more than just cars. The whole decor of the place is right out of an American Pickers episode, with vintage bicycles, motorcycles, toys, and antiques of all kinds.
After visiting the museum, we walked down the street to Bank Park and spent a few minutes photographing the historic Ledbetter Picket House, former home of William Henry Ledbetter, who in 1862 founded the Ledbetter Salt Works at a saline spring on the Salt Fork of Hubbard Creek, about eight miles southwest of the site where Albany was later founded.
All in all, it was a neat visit to a splendid little West Texas town.
