That photo certainly has an Australian look about it.
Browns had the BP agency in Meekatharra, a wall of their shop had trucking photos, gone in later years hope someone values them, all dirt roads.
Diesel bowser was in the back lane, you would be given the key, fill up then back to the shop to pay for it.
No wool from that area now, most had gone to cattle and wild dogs put an end to sheep for the remaining ones.
Trapping of wild goats for export was a source of income also, have heard that dogs have had an effect on their numbers,

Thanks Swishy.. (& wouldyou for the extra Info.).
I'm just trying to remember when those synthetic Woolpacks came into general use..

hayseed,
It's a long time since jute packs.
Wikipedia says polypropylene was introduced in 1960's, contamination from fibres resulted in Australian packs being required to be manufactured from nylon.
Would that truck be a Leyland?

I'm thinking more AEC. Perhaps one of Ron Bell's of Meekatharra?

Maybe slightly off topic, but someone asked if it could possibly have been an AEC. Every now and then a photo may turn up of a bonnetted AEC, most I have ever seen have been cab-overs. Would I be right in saying that bonnetted Leylands would have outweighed bonnetted AEC's??
Any of that type AEC's still in captivity, or in running condition??

Apologies Dima for straying from your topic and asking the make of that truck, looking at AEC photos very few bonneted ones, the ones that were looked to be dump trucks.
re Leyland Buffalo the name must have been associated with the running gear as they appear both bonneted and cab over.

It's all right, my friend. And yet I hope that you will share photos of trucks with sleeper cab 1910-1950's. Sincerely, Dima, Ukraine!
