This is a very interesting photo. Thanks Herb!

It makes me think of the air conditioned cabs with a super sound system, hydraulics, pneumatic tires, and all the other stuff that hadn't arrived yet. Work meant work, but this was a huge step in making things easier compared to the team of horses/mules those guys were using only a short time earlier.

It is a Republic. perhaps 1914. Disregard these '06 G&D bullet lights.

Prest-O-Lite tank feeding a single 5" or 6" lamp like a Victor. Looks like they came set up with two head lamps mounted on props on the cowl.

I'm guessing the truck came equipped with the forks for any type light the owner desired. This is a factory White set-up. Kerosene lamps could be mounted there with headlights at the front. If the acetylene lights were more practical within the drivers reach then that could be done.
Old gas lamps from cars were probably plentiful and cheap. Thus the early G&D lamps on the second picture.
