Accounting Offices Drive Right Up to Your Door (Jul, 1940)

Accounting Offices Drive Right Up to Your Door

Bookkeeping on wheels is the odd and profitable business that makes a good living for C. M. Harris, of Los Angeles, Calif. Harris owns a fleet of light trucks, each manned by an expert accountant and outfitted as a rolling office with a typewriter, calculator, bookkeeping machine, and other necessary office equipment. Whenever a small business concern asks for the services of an accountant or bookkeeper, Harris orders a mobile office out on the road in answer to the call. According to reports, the unique enterprise is booming, with 300 regular clients for the service.

    You’d think the accountants would have an issue with the owner selling steaks for $0.45.

    @ Toronto – Why, the accountants are getting cheap steaks.

    I like this idea! More important to me is is that a real Suburban?

    @experiment 626 – I’d say so. A ’39 beast. The cool 2-way grille came the next year.

    @Toronto Awesome! I wish I could find one and modernize it and cram the fam in it and go places!
