Appears to be a fairly hazardous perch for the pot tender
The guy must be cold blooded, with a shirt and a vest. Hope his suitcase doesn't fall and hit him in the head.Also the floor he is sitting on is held up by some pretty big chains, given that there isn't much cross- bracing as you can see by the sag in the middle.Bob Kitto
As I implied Bob The chains look to be of much sturdier material than the rods that support the upper doors
This wagon would be enclosed later to a full wagon. Was not sold in the Washington DC sale when the show went bust, but made it back to the 101 Ranch were it would be sold to the Cole Show by Mrs. Miller in April of 1935. Does anyone know if this wagon came from Andrew Downie (Walter L.Main Show) fall of 1924? Or was it shop built by the Ranch crew? Lots of photos of it later on, but haven't found anything of it being on the Main show. Thanks again for sharing your photos with us.p.j.
