Excellent find! The picture on the left was featured in Wheels & Tracks magazine.

Like I said, some of these SnoGos were used on the airfields in Holland.

See http://yankeeairmuseum.org/restoration/snogo.shtml for a wartime picture taken on 2/12/44 at Willow Run. It was used in the 1944 SNOGO print ads. Reportedly, the on the right (#6) is the one now preserved at the Yankee Air Museum.

Default Royal Air Force Bomber Command, 1942-1945.

"A snow-clearing vehicle sweeps the perimeter track at Waddington, Lincolnshire, to enable the night's raid, on Stuttgart, Germany, to take place. In the background, Avro Lancasters of No. 463 Squadron RAAF await their bomb-loads in an already-cleared dispersal.
Date: between 1942 and 1945"
