Photo Spot: Chain Drive Transmission

Now that should get ‘er done! In the early days of automotive design and fabrication, things were more industrial. How something looked took a back seat to making it work as inexpensively as possible. And so, we have the fully exposed it-could-rip-your-fingers-off chain drive transmission:

So back in the day this wouldn’t have been considered pretty or photo worthy. But a few weeks ago, while I was attending the Old Car Festival in Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford Museum, it caught my eye!

I like how the red pops and that the chain draws you into the back of the picture. I angled the camera to give the image a little more interest.
