The white van in the background is a Divco milk truck.

It is a Divco Milk Truck ,but these are post ww II and it does therefore not completely fit into this late thirties actions.

I knew this van, but could not think of the name -- thank you!

Now I found a nice page (http://www.divco.org/) which gives a lot of background information. This shape was designed in 1937, entered production in 1939 and stayed unchanged until 1986! Between 1936 and 1944 this company was known as Divco-Twin.

If we assume that this is one of the first models then it is the 'Divco-Twin Model U' (1939).

That's annoying these companies that change their names. We only two Divco on IMCDB, and they do not even have the same make name :D By the way, the link that you posted allowed me to put a model name on this other Divco ;)
