    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.

    This reminds me of Twin Peaks!

    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.
