Picture of the day: Walter Johnson gets a car

Another image from the Library of Congress Flickr stream, this one is of Walter Johnson receiving a car.

But why is he receiving a car? Well, from 1911 to 1914, the MVP was awarded a car  from Chalmers Automobile. The winner of the AL MVP in 1913? Walter Johnson. This is him receiving that car.
