(Update: realized just after posting this I’d missed a great title. Fixed.)

The photographs of Detroit’s giant salt mine are replete with Jeeps and a few other trucks I’m not sure of. IDs appreciated.

Fix your headlight!
Probably a Willys Wagon, possibly a Jeep Truck. This photo reminds me I need to get back to my Jeep Grille series.
I’m a little embarrassed I can’t identify the trucks in this one. Any help?

I definitely recommend checking out the rest of the photos. A nice slice of history.


Second update: speaking of history, I’d never heard of this remarkable disaster in a Louisiana salt mine.

The resultant whirlpool sucked in the drilling platform, eleven barges, a tugboat, many trees, and 65 acres (26 hectares) of the surrounding terrain.”
