Default '56 Buick Wagon Conversion

I am confused here. There is clearly someone already loaded in the wagon(you see his/her arm in the side window). Did they take him off of the stretcher??

To me, it looks like there is a gurney on the left side, and they are loading in a gurney on the right side. Keep in mind that back then, the ambulance went out with a driver and an attendant, but the patient(s) rode in the back unattended. Standard operating procedure of the day.

The patient in the car is on the passenger side on an auxiliary stretcher, while the other one is being loaded on the main cot.

it is a full cot with the floor pegs. most likely a 27. 50s for sure white Ts, blue jeans and penny loafers. the uniform of the day. my guess from the back ground is a collage or boarding school of some sort. the wagon conversion would be likely there also
