PORTRAIT OF FIVE MEN AND A JEEP ON A DIRT ROAD IN SERBIA

I would love to know the story behind this vintage postcard. Five men are standing by a Willys Jeep or Jeep-like vehicle. The car is on a dirt road. The men are posed in an odd manner. There are four men on one side of the automobile and a single man on the other side of the vehicle. Is the lone man a hired driver? Are the four other gentleman traveling together for business? There are mountains in the background. A cable car type system is in the near background. I wonder what was being transported by the cable cars? There is a small flag above the hood of the jeep. Although the design of the flag is not fully visible, the flag appears very similar to the flags flown by Serbia and some of it’s neighboring countries. The previous owner of this photograph has advised me that this photo was taken in Serbia. An inscription on the reverse of the  photograph lists five names that most likely belong to the five men in the photo. This photograph appears to be from the 1950’s. It is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. Did you examine the license plate for clues?

    • I was unable To derive the locale from the license plate. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than me can figure it out.
