From the shoebox: Lackie Brothers, heavy haulers

Lackie Brothers of Waterloo, ON ran a heavy hauling and rigging outfit until the late 1980s or early 1990s. They are no more, but I did catch some of their equipment back in 1982, setting up for some heavy hauls off the Halifax waterfront.
1. Old Kenworth, with tombstone rad, ready to hook up to a flatbed trailer.

2. Huge KW ready to go.

3. KW tilt cab with a trailer load of shores and bracing gear, and a crane to handle it.

4. The tombstone rad KW complete with some big steel billets for ballast, arriving on a float trailer.

5. A set-back front axle Western Star with engine trouble pulled the KW and float.

According to what I can find, most of Lackie Brothers' equipment was sold to G.M. Smith Ltd of King City, ON,
