There were two Covered Wagons - one in St. Paul, and one in Minneapolis. This postcard shows the St. Paul example, but I can’t imagine they were that different. They must have made millions of these cards, because they show up at every postcard convention, all in perfect condition. You can sense the honest, authentic pioneer-spirit here, right down to the ventilation duct thrusting out of the sky.

If the roof was fabric, the lights had to be electric.


The equally rustic fort-related dining room.

I'm not exactly getting a great-food vibe from this, but Duncan Hines said it was okay. Which meant, at the least, you wouldn't get poisoned.
