Hoover cart

Date: 1951 | Identifier: 741.1.d.57
Two men in a mule-drawn cart reminding voters of Herbert Hoover's administration and urging them to vote for Adlai Stevenson in the 1952 Presidential election. The Hoover Cart was driven by North Carolina farmers as a form of transportation during the Depression and was built by taking the rear wheels off of a car and attaching them to a cart.

Date from negative sleeve. more...
