Texas Ranch chuck wagon dinner time
A chuck wagon ready for dinner at the J.A. Ranch in Texas around 1907 with the cook watching a pot boil. It looks like a chuck wagon was a model of efficiency like a modern trailer. Lots of drawers, pots and pans - open it up and you have everything to cook over a fire and I guess even the food to cook on it.
