Real World Construction

I saw this on Tumblr and absolutely couldn’t pass it up.  All I can find about this image is that it comes from the famous Farm Security Administration photos documenting the depression.

October 1937. "Old school bus. Williams County, North Dakota." Medium-format negative by Russell Lee for the Farm Security Administration.

This appears to have started life as another wagon, maybe even a delivery van or bus but has been repaired beyond recognition.  I did a reverse image lookup and found a larger version (shown here).  Comments on THIS PAGE indicates it started as a Studebaker School Bus but was probably converted into a dwelling.
