Museum Field Truck Ready to Go  - 1927

Museum employee Frank Figgens sits in the driver's seat of a DMNS field truck outside of the Museum before heading out on an expedition sometime around 1927. Field trips took days and sometimes weeks, and stocking up on supplies was essential. Notice the spare tire and rim strapped to the top of the canvas-covered cargo bed before take off.

Boyd Fletcher found yet another great image while scanning the glass plate negative collection. Check back next week to see what he finds next.
