'Bugger" to drive? How about a "bugger" to get into. No running boards; and if it had right hand drive as most postal vehicles have, you'd have to crawl over the steering column to get in; and 'blind spots', well draw your own conclusions. Jeez.

I saw that too.

Many of that type bodies had a rear entrance. He is running it in summer design the tracks and skies go on for the winter. Great picture of what was going on in the day to save money and make a living. Didn't come that way from the factory. Purity police. Thanks for sharing.
