My Grandfather worked on the Levees along the Mississippi during the 1930's. Can anyone identify the truck?
It appears to me to be a Dodge . Reference: http://www.pickuptrucks.com/html/history/segment1.html
At that site it says the following about the truck shown below:
This World War I Dodge Brother's half-ton Army truck had a body built by the Budd Co. It rode on a 114-inch wheelbase chassis and was powered by the famous Dodge Brothers 212 cubic inch 35 horsepower four cylinder engine. (John Zentmyer)
Although the truck looks military, the folks in the photo do not appear to be in uniform. And the photos appear to be taken in different temperatures - one with the other without coats. And of course the canvas roof is much lower on the photos you posted.

Could this possibly be an Army Corps of Engineers truck? Looking at the official Corps of Engineers web site the Corps dates to 1802 and has used both military and civilian employees.
Bruce One other use of the truck would be for the Civilian Conservation Corps.
I would say, based on the clothing - especially the high heel lace up boots worn by the woman, the photos were taken in the early 1920s, not the 1930s.
Regarding the CCC - that was started in 1933. I would think they would be using newer vehicles, not a 16 year old Dodge.
