Some great old photo's in this lot for sure
Wonder what the go is with the Mack in the first photo as the grill looks more like Leader than a Mack grill or maybe a Brockway grill ??

I didn't realise how many single drive trucks there were over east. You hardly saw one over here after 1970.

The bloke who owned the yellow and black Atkinson, went halves with his cousin and bought out my grandfather's carrying business in 1959. They split the business a few years later, and both their businesses still operate today. The Atkinson survives.

Great photos. I always enjoy seeing any old truck photos, instead of being hidden away in a drawer and forgotten about, now a lot of interested people are now enjoying Peter Ramsey's photo collection . Well done Werkhorse and Peter Ramsey.
The Delta cab Foden looks like the one operated by Piedmont Removals who were next door to Southern Cross Trailers at Chipping Norton in the 80/90's.

A friend of a friend made a living delivering trucks, new or used, anywhere in Australia. He had his own trade plate. (I borrowed it once) He took his pushbike with him and rode to the nearest railway station to get a train home.
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!

It could be Paul as the truck has a Fibreglass Cab which was probably made in the same factory as the Leader cab. Kav

Greetings. Sturzaker's Commander was taken at the Sydney Haulage Terminal in March '73- I've got a photo of his very new looking SAR taken at Bunker Hill a few years later but it was taken at dusk with a flash and it didn't come out so good-bugger. The Foden I took west of Sydney on the way back to Adelaide, the Bunker Atkinson at Detroit's when they were on Torrens road. The blue MAN is the truck I used to go in during school holidays and the yellow Atkinson was Wheare's from Ardrossan. Don't see many 4x2's these days and I would assume where the Sydney Haulage Terminal once was is now established with housing. Used to be able to buy Overdrive magazine there- something to read and read waiting for a back-load. Next time
