Okay, here is the photo, reinstated. It's a Duck boat. My brother bought it on eBay and sent it to me as a reminder of the convoys of DUKW Amphibians which passed by our street. We lived near Seattle's Ft. Lawton, and in 1946 it was a major base for demobilization of soldiers returning from the Pacific Theater.

It has a little shovel and an axe mounted on the deck (or hood, or bonnet, whatever).

A couple years ago we went on a cruise that originated in Seattle. One of the tourist attractions was Duck Boat rides. We couldn't fit it in but I saw one. My mother, years earlier took the ride, and during the trip the driver would let one of the passengers drive. Well, this old woman volunteered, but when landing time came she wouldn't relinquish control and proceeded to drive the craft up onto the shore and park it perfectly.

Seems that that was her job at the factory during the war.
