I found this photo on a website called Shorpy, "The 100-year-old photo blog" (A vintage photography blog featuring thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1950s).
If you click to enlarge, you'll be able to read all the info, probably the most compelling part of which was "FREE! 160 acres of Western Canada Farm lands". No, we don't know that Joe Sand saw this particular vehicle, but I assume Canada has been advertising in Minnesota
for more than the last 50 years.
I'm curious how this thing was used--at fairs maybe, or in parades, or did they just drive it around?
*Sorry, the post title refers to Grandma's brother
Joe Sand and his wife Antonia Poser,
who left for Canada soon after they were married in 1908.
