George Prehoda stands by truck full of corn, 1920s

Dublin Core

Description

Farm man George Prehoda stands by his open truck cab (Walch, p. 34). The truck bed, made of wooden boards, contains a large pile of corn.

In addition to farming, George Prehoda volunteered as Coralville's first fire chief. When interviewed, he could remember three fires occurring while he was in this position: one at the Carlton house, the second on a spur line on the Rock Island railway, and the third at a garage the fire fighters rented from the Mayor Edward Koser to use as a fire house (Lovetinsky et al., p. 52-53).
