If you build it, they will come...

Some of my favorite pictures are those of the trailer built by Robert William Johns - obviously using skills learned while working at Fruehauf Trailer Company. I love all the homey touches.

This is Margretta sitting in the back of the trailer. Notice they had a stove.

Linoleum on the floor, decorated pillows and wall coverings.

Even a clock on the wall! Do you think the cat traveled with them?

And so it began...

David Davis & Melvina Johns, on their wedding day, 30 Jan 1923. I don't know where the photo was taken, but I don't think it was in front of the court house.

I recently found their wedding announcement in the Yampa (Colorado) Leader newspaper, 9 Feb 1923 issue, on page 1.
