I was very interested to see Grandad's picture of the Marmon Herrington operated by the Nairn Brothers. They were from New Zealand and after the First World War they pioneered a transport business across the desert in Africa. I have a book giving the towns and Cities they linked by road, a lot of it roughly following the centuries old camel trails and a lot where wheeled vehicles had never been before. I also gives the names of the Brothers, which I should remember but do not. Place names such as Damascus and Istanbul come to mind but I am not about to search several crates of books to get the details. There appear to be very few pictures of their freight carrying vehicles but more of their passenger buses which (I think) started with Cadillacs hauling semi-trailer buses but soon standardised on Marmon Herringtons.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

The Nairns operated in Palestine, Lebanon Syria and Iraq, not Africa. Very interesting story.

I suspect the first photo is the very flash prime-mover being fitted up with its trailer in the factory. Note the trailer alongside also looks brand new and the sign writing is still incomplete.

Wonder what trailer manufacturer? I suspect it is actually Pullman who built and operated 10's of thousands of rail sleeper cars but also had their own Pullman brand cars during the 20's
