This series of 5″x7″ photos were taken at the Esslingen Germany shop where jeeps were reconditioned. It’s not clear if these are reprints, but still a rare bit of history.

    In the background of the welding photo I think that’s a parts board that I’m guessing is a reference for all the boxed parts in that long bin below it. Unless I’m wrong.

    look at the water puddles on top of the jeeps – i know canvas is waterproof until it touches something , then it leaks — the welding parts board looks like special jeep tools ? miller ?
