Moving your house on wheels a different way

Moving your house on wheels a different way
It sometimes takes time before you are used to some kinds of things. And when you are used to it, you don’t want to change. Your car, work, partner or house is all part of your daily ritual. So when the place where you live gets another purpose, you just put wheels on your house and build a massive camper van. Well, probably this is not exactly the way it went on the photo above. But what we see is a house that gets transported in the sixties/seventies (looking at the cars). It looks like they are putting the light pole back on.

The cars on the highway and the house itself make me think of the States, but we also see a Citroën passing. And an Airstream caravan. What else can you identify?

This photo was originally published in the 23 October 1973, Los Angeles Times. Here is the photo caption from that day.

"An early 1900s house crossing over the Nimitz Freeway in Oakland stops so workers can free its eaves from being entangled with a light pole."

Mr. Lowe, that would put the year to 1968 or later, correct?

Looks like USA to me.
The D model Citroen’s sold in USA had to have twin headlights with no covers due to US laws.
Spoiled the smooth lines of the European version.

Among various trucks, I can see a 63 Ford Galaxie, what I think is a 1970 AMC Matador and a Mercedes 220S or SE. It appears to be in Florida or California. I've seen in an article years ago about how a house entirely made of coral was being moved on a truck like this one. The truck leaned too far, the house fell off the truck and shattered into a million pieces! Funny to talk about at the bar at the end of the day, but not at the side of the road.
