Calvin Coolidge at the reins

I’m a few days late, but this picture appears to have been taken almost exactly 80 years ago (it is dated July 14th, 1931) , as former president Calvin Coolidge was visiting his hometown of Plymouth Notch, VT. At that time, he was probably glad not to be at the reins of the federal government anymore.
