Buster Keaton: American Austin Afficionado

On eBay today, there is a period photo of Buster Keaton in his American Austin roadster.  This is most likely the car which met an untimely demise as a result of a run in with a locomotive.  Here the car looks quite nice, and a lot of the factory detail work on the car is visible.  As an 8 x 10 photo, this is a substantial item to add to your collection.  A neat thing about this photo is the car is clearly an important part of it.  On the other end of the spectrum, there is something about Joan Peers’ eyes that have insured that I will not be bidding on this otherwise great photo.  (I don’t like the concept of being stared down by a photograph…)
