My Grand Uncle, Paul Herman Wedmark, was an itinerant photographer who lived in his truck. This could have been in Hennepin, Minnesota. The postmark is Sep. 12, 1930. He died the following year. View full size.

How did it handle in traffic?

What a bizzare vehicle. I saw another similar vehicle in the National Geographic about 10 yeras ago. The difference was that the attached "house" was a chapel instead of a photo parlor. I'm wondering how they could drive such a contraption down the road and avoid other houseboats, cars and horses with the strange window placement. I'm going to assume (and hope) that the big sign on front was removable and that there is a wiondow beneath. Backing it up must have been an ordeal.
