"(All of this scratch-pad reasoning might be wrong, but not horribly so, I don't think.)"

Agreed - unless we go to the even more gruesome possibility of a colossal nuclear-powered land truck...

I have a photograph taken in the Forties of a rather large vehicle that I've never seen before, taken by an Army photographer. I'd like to id the thing, but everyone I've shown it to is at as big a loss as I am for an explanation. It could be a fuel hauler, but there's a door in the side of it for stepping into it, and no hoses or external connections for fuel. The tires are about ten foot tall...

Sounds fascinating! Let's see it.

I sent a scan of it to lily@segalbooks.com

If that's not the right place to send it, let me know: ddcachets@gmail.com

John Ptak

Yes, send it on Dave. Email it to jfptak@thescienceboosktore.com

Thanks, Dave. Interesting. It's obviously not an APC (which was my first thought). The location appears to be a racecourse. There's some kind of logo on the side. Is that as high a resolution as you can get? I'd say best bet is get a more high-res scan and throw it open for identification. If you're not a member, I'll happily post it to Ask Metafilter http://ask.metafilter.com/
