Seth spotted this postcard depicting a jeep pulling visitor trams at the Wisconsin Deer Park at the Wisconsin Dells. Opened in the 1950s (see history here), the park still operates, but there’s no evidence that the trams are still used, The closest thing to a jeep tram is a kids train.
Another example of a Jeep Train. This one is from St. Augustine.
Here’s a neat postcard image that John shared with me. Unfortunately, there’s nothing to indicate the year. Based on the comment that tops are available in canvas, plastic, and wood, this is likely a late ’40s postcard.
UPDATE: Another Feshin Hole Postcard for sale.

Great old card.
