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. :-)

Jay,

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.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

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