Title

William Fuegy's gas station with caravan

Description

Black and white print of a horse-drawn caravan in front of a local gas station. Four horses draw two wagons, one filled with hay and the other is a covered caravan wagon made of scrap boards and built onto an old car chassis. Behind that is hitched a single-axle trailer that appears to have been made from the back of a truck. This, too, is filled with hay, and two more horses are hitched to that. Note the milk-can on the side of first wagon and the smoke-stack attached to the rear of the covered vardo. A close examination of the structure of the first wagon indicates it could have been a more traditional vardo, with the curved top and covered front seat.
