Today’s Top 5


The Woodville Farm Labor Center is still active today, with "one-hundred-seventy-eight 2, 3 and 4-bedroom units" available for agricultural workers. A New Deal site gave an address in Porterville, very near Woodville. The street view is of one house in the complex. There have been additions, but the windows have the right configuration. Unfortunately, the last time street view went through the area was 2007, so it's a little fuzzy.

Very nice home design

I like the simplicity, the large windows , and even a nice sunshade-trellis overhead with potential. Fast forward 50 years to the 5000 square-foot McMansions with only three living inside, with 32,000 sq ft of giant roofs, and rooms no one would ever use in a lifetime.

Tyke Trike

Sky King is another candidate for the tricycle - the back comes to a point like the one in the picture. I get the impression there were lots of competitors offering streamlined tricycles. It looks like the trike in the picture was rode hard and put away wet - paint and decorations are missing - but the boy seems satisfied with it.

Restored streamline tricycle

1935 Designer Trike

Complete with electric siren, even has wing-shaped pedals ... fabulous!

[That is fabulous, but not the same as the trike in the photo. Which has a streamlined "tail" for the body, in addition to the wheels. - Dave]

Art moderne

Never have I seen a streamlined tricycle that might have been designed by Raymond Loewy. If you had it today, it would be worth a bundle. I hope this kid appreciates it.

I Like Trike

Never have I ever seen such a cool tricycle. And the tiny house looks very nice too.
