A World War I Photo

There’s no name or date on this photo. It came from my Grandma Susie’s collection, pictures probably sent to her by Peter. The man is obviously pouring gasoline (you could carry gasoline around in a bucket in those days). The photographer’s shadow indicates he was using a Brownie-type camera. Note the hard rubber tire on the truck.

This vehicle is similar to the ambulance Ernest Hemingway drove during World War I.
