Muddy wheelbarrow in very clean truck

Here's some Albuquerque contrast for today. The truck is maximally clean. The wheelbarrow, not.

The truck and wheelbarrow are the same colors as the sky and trees!



Laurie McPherson spotted and sent this.

German detainees in Fort Stanton, New Mexico

"SS Columbus sailors garden-Ft. Stanton, N.M."




In the second photo, they're working on a swimming pool, for their own use. Wheelbarrow show in the rear to the right. The photo is wider, but I only found it cut across two pages of a magazine article here: German Sailors on the High Desert



Same wheelbarrows, probably; different projects. Early 1940s.

"The fire (and bonus wheelbarrow for Sandra! Used to bring the burgers, buns and drinks across the paddock!) — at Rotherfield Countryside."



Jo's photo.
I know everyone in that picture—people from Australia and England who ate together in East Sussex yesterday.

"Heavenly Wheelbarrow"

From a site on Chinese Antiques:
A photo of a “heavenly wheelbarrow” (the caption on the back of the wheelbarrow says “Heavenly Wheelbarrow) taken in 1910 in or near Qingdao.



That photo has been in this blog before, but not with those details!

Next to that photo, on the same webpage, was another wheelbarrow, all wooden, without notes, except the name "Chinese wheelbarrow." The details are nice. I suppose the rails and knobs are more than decorative, if a load could have been tied in or covered.
