Coal Sampling Jeep From 1950

The above slide (and a Kodachrome to boot) is labeled “Coal Sampling Equipment, 1950.” I am guessing that it may have been a jeep in the service of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management. It has the same U.S. government decal on the side door that I have found in another set of slides of men and their jeeps working in what appears to be the American West in the search for oil drilling sites.

This CJ3-A is yet another jeep that continued to faithfully serve the men and women of this country in our post-war work.

You can click here to view it in it’s image album.

P.S. Farewell Kodachrome! Take a look at this website in honor of another American legend!
