Truck

Description

WWII-Work Assignments/New Guinea.
Ink drawing of an assembled utility truck from behind. Cabinet doors along the visible side and a ladder showing from the opposite.
Verso: "Summer 1945."
Maurice explained the trucks were sent in pieces and assembled by whatever company was going to use them. That way they could pack more compact crates. One crate had one truck. During the war they were having trouble getting ships to send supplies (trucks, ammunition, guns) so the army had a contest of who could make the best suggestion for storing more supplies. The person won the contest had a very, very simple suggestion that they squash the toilet paper rolls flat.
Maurice. 1713.
