Vernacular photos: Fire trucks and the great outdoors

For your Wednesday morning perusal and enjoyment, here are three vernacular/found photographs picked up at thrift shifts, etc., in previous years. My guess would be that all three date to the 1950s. There is no identifying information whatsoever.

First up is two kids in snazzy fire trucks. I believe these might have been called the "Dexton Fire Fighter Comet Sedan Pedal Car Riding Toy," because some fairly faithful reproductions are available for purchase, if you have two hundred buckeroos.

After that are two ways to enjoy nature without getting devoured by mosquitoes — an elevated cabin and a family-sized tent.
