Portable trailer in use in blind landings. Washington D.C. This portable trailer where all the equipment is enclosed can be easily transported to any position on the Airdrome so that the pilot can approach the field into the wind for his landing. All the beam control is dispatched from this trailer to the instrument in the cockpit of the plane while at the same time the pilot is in contact with the airport control tower. Photo shows the plane in a test taking off over the trailer in a test at the Airdrome

Many districts in the 946 square miles of Sanilac County, Mich. have no meeting places; many people refused to attend anything resembling health meetings. To these places and people this "child welfare special" has gone, this ten-foot trailer, a small house on wheels, dressed up with a cot, a scale, a homemade refrigerator, a measuring table, a baby basket and literature and posters. Hooked on the end of a Ford coupe, it weighs 1,440 lbs. and can be easily moved with the help of a few small boys. Twenty-six baby conferences have been held around this trailer, 1,590 babies and children have been weighed and measured in it. It has appeared at picnics and fairs, in front of country stores and down the long, long country roads where literature and advice and service have been given by the Red Cross nurse

Mrs. Carl T. Thoner with "Trailer"
This is a partial view of the living room showing the dinette corner with its collapsible table and chairs. The other end of the living room, not shown here, contains a studio couch which sleeps two. In addition, the trailer house contains a fully equipped kitchenette, a bedroom with built-in double bed and a large amount of storage space, and a bathroom. Walls are of plywood in natural finish, ceiling is plywood painted white, floor is plywood covered with inlaid linoleum. The square panel in the center of the ceiling is a ventilator which can be cranked open in summer. All windows are of the sliding type to occupy minimum space and to minimize the use of critical hardware
This photograph shows how the two halves of a trailer house, delivered individually, are assembled by simply rolling them together on previously prepared foundations which consist of a few posts driven into the ground connected by planks upon which the house halves roll by means of small wooden wheels. Each half is light enough to be towed behind a 3/4 ton truck or passenger car. They come fully equipped with all essential furniture and equipment, either built-in or stored inside during transport. They are connected to each other by a few bolts, while the roof sections meet in ridges over which a common cap is laid. The whole operation may take between one and three hours, including connection to previously prepared utilities. The section or halves measure 26' x 7'9," thus permitting highway transportation without special permits. Any number of sections can be combined. Two- and three-bedroom houses. Recreation buildings, bath houses, and even very large barracks, have been constructed by TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) on the same general plans but using more sections
This is another assembled trailer house constructed on the same principle but designed more along the lines of a house than a trailer. It was also reduced in cost somewhat by substitution of a simple wide window for the bay window on the front of the living room

Demountable employee housing.This brand new type of housing accommodation was developed through several intermediate steps and experiments in prefabrication, in answer to the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority's) need for housing for temporary use on construction projects in remote localities. The scheme permits fabrication at a distance from the job (about 600 miles in this instance), thus reducing dependence on overtaxed accommodations at the construction project. After completion of the project, the demountable housing is quickly removed elsewhere. Some of the earlier TVA demountables have been moved three times from project to project. The design shown here is particularly light in weight due to full use of the recently developed stressed-skin system of plywood construction. It is built largely of weatherproof plywood. The large bay across the front greatly enhances the size of the living room. The trailer houses, on the basis of experience to date, are entirely competitive in cost with traditionally constructed housing of the same floor area. On account of being constructed in shops rather than in the field, they are produced with much closer tolerances, considerably better finish, and with equipment designed and constructed with greater detail and superior utilization of space

President Roosevelt's sees doom of trailer families in this country. Washington, D.C., March 29. Scenes like this at the Washington trailer camp, within a stone's throw of the Washington Monument, will soon be a thing of the past, was the belief President Roosevelt expressed to reporters at his press conference yesterday. He said sooner or later the government is going to demand and require that everybody in the bounds of the United States have a home address somewhere - and that there be an end of the trailer type of families, gypsies, hoboes and migratory drifters who flock by the thousands to such sunny climes as Florida and California without the slightest idea as how they are going to live when they arrive. 3-29-39
