William Young Invents the Tiny House Fad 1935! From the book In Situ American Folk Art in Place by Jim Linderman
William Young is shown with his less than regal sleeping accommodations in 1935. Yes, it is only a pushcart with a bed, but they were desperate times. Mr. Young attempted to travel from New York to Florida, and I believe he made it. Note on the side of the cart reads "All Aboard to St. Petersburg Florida" and it appears he brought his wife along! Note Whirligig on the right chimney, carved bird on the left.
