2) Secretary Pace Talks with People in a Jeep

This photo was taken circa 1952. There isn’t a description.  It is one of the nicer Military Police Jeeps I’ve seen.  The door is particularly unusual.

    Hey, there’s that Trunk Monkey!

    By slim coincidence, I just saw this photo on the Walck’s Facebook Site minutes ago. Good photo Buz!

    I like the locking steering wheel. I guess the monkey can’t be trusted.
