If anyone wanted to build one of these, this would be a very good photo to use for determining measurements. By using the known wheelbase value, one could extrapolate all the other measurements. It is not often one sees a very clear photo of this taken in an almost direct side view.

Those are pockets for the handles of the stretchers, it's been covered before (what hasn't?): :-)

I used a similar side on shot of the original van when making my Haigh's chocolate van. I scaled the measurements, both vertical and horizontal, form the known dimensions of the wheels. That way any distortions in the photo are compensated for.

Hope this helps.

Allen,
Very good idea. I was wondering how to compensate for distortion.
