1950 Chevrolet

From Alex Emond in south Saskatchewan: "Here's a scene from Lafleche, Sask. This Chevrolet probably does a bit of yard work and trips to the dump a few times a year. Semi-retired, almost out to pasture. I realize that these photos are like hardware store calendar art but so be it.
I was a little upset to see that this late 40's International Harvester truck was no longer in it's spot, in a back yard in Lafleche ... I did this quick sketch of it late last summer. It might have been sold or maybe the owner is working on it somewhere . Cheers" --AE
