Wagon Ho Pioneer Driver

This dude guards the entrance to Baker Acres RV park. I'm not sure where he's from, but growing up in Bradenton, Florida, there was a Wagon Ho restaurant on South Tamiami Trail. The building looked like a wagon, and a guy like this drove it.

[J. Arthur Fruth, 03/29/2024]

Earlier tipsters reported that the Wagon Master of Bradenton was moved to an RV dealership, then destroyed in a storm. The same style figure has been spotted elsewhere as a pioneer, prospector, and frontiersman.
