The truck in one of the bottom photos is fairly small, maybe only a one-ton. I wonder if it is a Kelsey? IH? Or something else?
Really cool pics Herb! Early Yankee ingenuity...love the conveyor system in the top photo, then the "More advanced" method subsequent.
Sure wouldn't wanna be in the job trailer during a strong wind storm! Bet it's not anchored to the ground.
Is that a clay pipe that guy has on his shoulder? them things are heavy!
It sure looks like a clay pipe to me.
