I don't believe the Joads used a TT but Steinbeck was sure familiar with T's. Many references to them concerning driving and repairing them in his books. Just read Cannery Row for some really familiar/funny stuff.

Wasn't it a Hudson Super Six? (In the book not the film.)

The "smoking" woman on the left appear to be tipping a flask more than holding
a smoke. Overall, it seems the point of th photo was to be cajoling around.

Sign on side reads Mission Cliffs Transfer. Curious dress and accoutrements.
Wonder what the story was ?

Note the underhung insulators on the telephone lines behind. This was the
"Brown's System" (Patented Nov. 23rd 1886) for doubling the capacity of the
crossarms. I have a single sidepin version on the wall right here beside me with
a Peacock Blue Westinghouse No.3 on top and a Greeley-marked "Brown's Pony"
showing how it worked.

Great photo ! :-)

It is because of images like this that I am drawn to the TT trucks. Just pure
American iconism !

Well, my grandfather was an Italian not having ever been in Oklahoma or San Diego so I guess it's not him. But dang, this guy could be his twin.

Thanks!!!
