    Wondering if anyone could provide some history on this. I've never seen one before. My research has provided nothing but another picture. I paid 25 bucks for it.

      I wonder if there was some new automotive debuted at the 1934 Worlds Fair. Maybe your adorable little garage held a toy replica of it.
      That might be some place to start researching.

      I just read about the 1938-1939 Chicago World's Fair automobiles and now I get what your little wooden 1934 garage is telling us!

      The actual World's Fair included the newest, the most innovative, the most fabulous and extravagant examples of everything including automobiles such as the real gold appointed Golden Packard, the finest Cadillacs, the Dusenberg "Twenty Grand" (it's name and also it's price), all the best of the best to be ogled.....but ownership could only be a dream for the average person.

      That's because Great Depression raged from 1929 until about 1939 and there was rampant unemployment, loss of fortunes, extreme poverty, despair, homelessness and hunger.

      Your humble little garage, empty, is a realistic yet humorous statement of what the average citizen would have been lucky to have had in 1934.

      Maybe a little piece of satire.
