In 1936, two men made a bet on the presidential election between Roosevelt and Al Landon. Republican Frank Duncan, standing with the sunflower, bet on Landon.  Democrat, Curt Campbell, riding in the wheelbarrow, bet on FDR. Campbell, holding a rooster, won the friendly bet and as a reward was wheeled from the Carrs Fork Commissary to Vicco, a distance of three miles, much to the delight of onlookers.

At one time Vicco, KY was a large coal mining camp.  Probably everyone in or around Vicco came to town to see a feat of strength when this photo was taken in the late '30s.  An out of towner created a lot of excitement when he pulled a car down Main Street with his teeth.
