While food trucks have become all the rage today and the Chicago City Council just passed a new law, which has people on both sides of the fence chiming in with positive and negative sentiments, back in the day they may not have been so plentiful.

This picture above, posted on local history photo blog Calumet 412, shows a group of fur-clad women and a man in a suit and overcoat, stepping up to a food truck on the Northwestern University campus circa 1925 for hot dogs, sandwiches, cold drinks and more. Wonder what, if any, restrictions they had back then?
