That is a wild braking system. Other trailers of the time had mechanical brakes with the rods connected to a vacuum cylinder like the one in the picture.

 

I used to have a 51 Chrysler New Yorker that had an aluminum vacuum tank ahead of the radiator, I know the car was used to tow a travel trailer, this indicates they were still using vacuum operated brakes then. I don't know when electric brakes became the norm.

By the way Wendy we would love to see some pictures of your trailer, it would help put a value on it too.

I also pointed this thread out on the Pierce Arrow Society members forum and hopefully someone there will be able to give you some advice.

Thank you

Wendy, I sent you a PM with my direct email address. Send me some photos and your number, and I will call you and give you an opinion as to it’s value. I own a Model B now, and am not intrested in acquiring another trailer. I will not post your photos or comment on the value of it publicly. My best, Ed

Here's my Travelodge, all wrapped up and at the end of it's 500 mile journey to my home.....had a lot of the original interior, in very poor condition, and it had been home to lots of animals (including raccoons, yuk) over the years.  Body solid, needs some slight frame work, and have lots of the original hardware.
