1970’s EPA Project Documents Early Mobile Office in Texas
What was life in America like during the 1970’s? Well, if you didn’t witness it in person, the Environmental Protection Agency wanted to make sure future generations could see it with their own eyes – at least in pictures anyway.
One of several photographers commissioned by the EPA was Marc St. Gil. He chose to capture American life in rural Texas. His photo essay allows us to peer into what small town Texas life was like forty years ago. From hunting scenes, farming, and recreation to this photograph of an original ‘mobile office.’
Mayor Casey, shown here, created a his mobile real estate and handy man office out of his van. He was surely a man with forward thinking ideas.
