Thus there is an air of mystery regarding how this album cover came to be.
I Just discovered the liner notes for this album say "Thanks to Airstream for their 1937 trailer.", which suggests that Airstream actually owned Old Grandad by 1970. The liner notes also identify the photo location as "dry lake El Mirage", which is near Los Angeles.
