Jeeps in Holland
But what nice Chrysler ambulance in the background......
US Army surplus. Normandy veteran cars, that got new civil life in the poor post war Europe.
I dig the last picture, bakery delivery van. Probably a plywood cabin?
Info with the picture: "Baker Goossens made a delivery van out of an old army Jeep. The roads to his customers, farmers in the south of the Netherlands (Brabant), were very bad, so a Jeep was the only car that made it through the mud."
No info on the materials used to make the cabin (and the fenders)

East 22nd Street, Police shoot-out, 1938
Feb. 17, 1938: Tear gas drifts from a home in the 1700 block of East 22nd Street as Los Angeles police trade gunfire with barricaded suspect George Farley. The bodies of a deputy city marshal and his helper — shot and killed by Farley as they tried to serve an eviction notice on him — lie in front of the barricaded home. Killed were Deputy Marshal T. Dwight Crittenden and Leon W. Romer, both 60.
Farley, 55, was wounded five times and captured after police stormed the house. He was later convicted of two counts of manslaughter and ordered to serve 10 to 20 years in San Quentin State Prison.
These two photos ran in the Los Angeles Times on Feb. 18, 1938. No photographer was credited, but when the top image took second place for News Pictures in the 1939 Los Angeles Press Photographers’ Assn. contest, the photographer was identified as Times staffer J. H. McCrory.
