An oldie from my collection. As BLB (Big Lorry Blog) says, the world was black and white back then.This is a Diamond Reo day cab, with a tarp top trailer. The photo was taken on Dutch Village Road (now Joseph Howe Drive) in Halifax, just up from the Rotary. Bethany United Church is in the background. It is no longer visible from this position because the IMP building was since built on the corner of Clinton Ave.
It's a Cole's Express tractor (from Maine.) If you are ever in Bangor, Maine look up the Cole Land Transportation Museum-worth a visit! If you can't make it, see this web site: http://www.colemuseum.org/
Date of photo: August 1970.
