    I wonder about the accuracy of the 1940's tag on this photo. That would seem to be too massive a load for a truck of that vintage.

    The White Truck Company was producing trucks suited for hauling these sorts of loads well before 1942. They had vacuum assisted hydraulic brakes. My father has a few terror stories dealing with driving these, the advent of air brakes gave you better reliability as a hydraulic fluid leak could quickly leave you in a world of hurt.

    They started manufacuring trucks in the 1920's.

    Shoot, we do a lot of logging in Colorado, too. Where did they locate that toothpick plant?
