It’s the time of the year when thoughts turn to the open road, where dreams of diminished responsibilities could possibly come true. Even the most manicured and fastidious amongst us could find herself yearning for nothing but a quilt and a rocking chair and a dog at the feet as they turn the pages of artist and photographer Jane Lidz’ 1979 classic, Rolling Homes: Handmade Houses on Wheels. I found these images in the Rolling Homes Flickr set belonging to Emerson Merrick. Click through to see lots more, and you’re sure to come away with the smell of pine needles and woodsmoke in your hair.
