Herb -
It is a Republic, around 1916. I can't make out the license plate, though.

That cowl screams Republic. Many had the cast radiator shell with the fins.
How about a Minnesota plate?

It's a brand-new Walker Electric 3.5 ton chassis, Model P. 12 mph, 40 - 50 miles per charge.
Washington, D.C. passed a local Prohibition ordinance, and National Capital Brewing Company transitioned in May 1917 to producing ice cream instead of beer. Carry's Ice Cream was produced for only one year, after which Albert Carry sold it. The facility became the Meadowgold Dairy until the 1960s.
When did I do that?

Love the coal delivery truck. It looks like it has removable dividers in the dump bed so you can haul 3 loads to different customers with only one trip from the coal tipple and it lifts high enough to get the coal into the basement on the coal chute.

Don't forget to rattle the grate in the furnace to get rid of the clinkers! :roll:

The proud driver's rig looks like one of a fleet ? I'd sure like to know the make and year. It's always amused me how many of the early trucks placed headlights high and on the cowl like this one. Perhaps to keep them out of harm's way in rough working situations ? The kerosene running lamps have a bail, indicating usefulness as a carry-around lantern when needed. Great photo !! Thanks again, Herb !!

Wouldn't it be great to have this photo explained ? A barrel ?!? A BARREL on top of the van ?!? :shock:

My dad used to remark on accidents where a party ". . . wrapped their car around a lamp-post . . ." an expression that likely originated in this era. Photos like these show it happened not infrequently!

That's quite a load it's carrying. My curiosity got the better of me and I discovered it is a Peerless truck. Maybe a 1911 or so.
This has been a wonderful thread and we have learned a lot.
Thanks

There it is again, a huge "cyclops" headlight mounted high up. I wonder if oncoming travelers might have feared a locomotive had jumped the tracks !
I'm assuming the Peerless truck was made by the same folks who made the automobile. Interestingly, when the "Three P's" dominated the market for luxury/prestige automobiles, Packard, Peerless and Pierce-Arrow also made heavy trucks. Seems counter-intuitive. Could you imagine Harley Earl designing a ten-ton 1959 Cadillac truck ? :lol:

Once again Herb your truck pictures are great, thanks for posting them.

I look at that big truck with the tall load and wonder how many of them flipped on to their side when they drove down a soft muddy road.

Like the WW1 ambulances, the military used many different makes of trucks. Perhaps suppliers couldn't make them fast enough. Those look more like Peerless than others I'm familiar with. These Peerless's have the high dash and other similarities. Note the Peerless name on front cross member. Even these two have different radiators which shows how even the same maker varied things.

Also, there were a lot of French, British and other trucks built over seas that show up in war photos.
When did I do that?

:lol: True enough Perry!
Neat image Burger and a really nice truck/express box.
Dodge or Overland? Just by the shape of the windshield stanchions that go straight down thru the top of the body with nuts and cotters underneath. The gas tank filler also I guess. An Overland'ish rad cap? I could be completely full of beans.
And oilers for the front wheel bearings?
Beautiful wheels!

What a monster. I understand that the 5 ton would have used a 431.9ci T4 40hp engine. A "T" head like the Model Thirty Packard I'm guessing. It would be fun to see one of those.
Nice colorization for that era.
Thanks for sharing it.
