The lettering on that truck reminds me of some of the labels on my Edison Diamond disk records. Faded gray lettering on a black back ground. Kinda hard to read.
I wonder if French steam was better than the more common American steam? I wonder how hard it was to import French steam? My Grandfather was from France and installed large Corliss engines across the US in the late 19th century. I wonder if he brought French steam with him for those? I guess we'll never know.
Thank you Jay for stimulating my pathetic tongue in cheek reaction.
John, I googled French Steam Dye. The first offering told me "Dupont French Silk Dyes are very popular throughout the world." The second was a reference to this thread. Seems we are becoming experts on many topics.
If you want French steam today you have to feed your boiler with Perrier.
Thank you for posting the photo. Nice picture of a van body mounted on the improved car chassis. I have not seen many bodies on the improved car chassis. I remember many more photos from the 1925 and earlier car chassis.

Hap, I was thinking the same thing. And the more solid look of the improved chassis really suits being a truck.
