I wonder why they camped in a tent in town where there were houses nearby? Or would that be a tent "Revival meeting?"
It's big enough for a garage.
Its there living quarters while they build there new home, or there's relative's coming to visit.
That looks a lot like the Liepelt's setup at Greenfield Village during the Old Car Festival.
Maybe his mother inlaw is coming to visit
Tom - Yes it kinda looks like Liepelt's setup, but theirs is a trailer type camper and this looks like is it just a tent. I see it also has a chimney, quite likely for a wood burner.
Ground is wet I wonder if the tent is what they were living in while waiting for their house to be completed My dad told me they sometimes did that in small towns in the day?
Deer Camp!! Bud.
I think James got it right.
They will live there until mother-in-law goes home.
Then it's back to the house.
Would be interesting to know what the story was.
