mobile motorized outdoor office (c. 1961)


The great Retronaut‘s tagline is “See the past like you wouldn’t believe”, and it does indeed shift our view. We LOVE  this version of ‘going to the office’: a motorized desk on wheels, toodling down the street en plein air…the mobile office circa 1961.

    Love it! Didn’t the Get Smart guy have something similar or is that my imagination?

    I found it at Retronaut ages ago. But since they changed the site, I haven’t been able to relocate it.
