Yosemite Machine Shop

Yosemite Machine Shop

I believe these are brand new 1936 Ford Model 51 trucks parked in front of the Yosemite Machine Shop (National Park Service) in the Yosemite Valley. Appears to be Department of the Interior license plates. This side of building is still in use by maintenance personnel. The other side of the building, which is out of sight on the right, houses the fire station and jail.
