An exhibition of tiny Vagabond trailers opens today at the CREHST museum in Richland.
The small silver trailers, which were popular during and after World War II, offered less than 150 square feet of living space to accommodate an average of 3.7 people.
Many people who came to work at Hanford during the 1940s brought these trailers to live in at the Hanford construction camp, which housed about 3,600 trailers along with barracks.
During the peak of construction back then, the camp had about 51,000 people in residence.
