The Winton, built in Ohio, was made by hand and came with a leather roof, padded seats, gas lamps, and tires made by B.F. Goodrich.

1928 - At the age of 30 years old, Celia was alive when aviatrix Amelia Earhart, age 31, became the first woman to fly solo across North America and back in August.

The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

1929 - At the age of 31 years old, Celia was alive when on March 4th, Herbert Hoover became the 31st President of the United States.

This lead to one term and the election of Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt winning the 1933 election in a landslide.
