Never realized there was that many MAN trucks in Australia

Always interesting to take a look in the past to see how wrong I was :blink: :blink: :lol: :lol:

Overlander, you and your box brownie must have been standing on the white line for some of these snaps, or did you flag that first Atkinson to stop for a photo.

Very well done by you. Thanks

How long since any of us have seen a water bag. One on the first Big A.

Greetings. Mrsmack- I used to go with Rob Henderson in his blue M A N on page 88 so I did favour taking photos of M A N trucks. The M A N at the start of page 89 was a D J Walker, then there is a Cameron Kenworth taken around Goulburn somewhere as was the East Coast what looks to be like a day cab Road Commander- didn't see a lot of day cab Road Commanders. The White 7564 was a Frank Marchetti, the Atkinson with the water bag belonged to Shell, next Atkinson was Golding Industries- they used to cart cement out of Angaston. The W model Kenworth was Portland Cement and yes the Mac Fies Kenworth was the 12V71 jobbie. The KMR XT5 Bedford was John Collins would you believe- had that around the same time as the day cab 4 x 2 Kenworth- both powered with bird scarers'. He's come a long way since running 4 x 2 lorries. Changed his colors as well. The Atkinsons were taken through the windshield of a Mark 1 Cortina- the benefit of taking photos of the truck photos with my phone camera is that I can 'blow up' the photo and cut out the car bonnet or the stone guard on Rob's truck. Resolution doesn't improve though. It's pleasing that these photos cause comment about the era- like having a water bag mounted on the bumper- Dad used to have one one the family Fc and his Highways Dept work ute. Next week for more history.

Yes it has been a very long time since I've seen a water bag on any vehicle. What I do remember is how cool and refreshing the water was out of one.
Dad used to soak his water bag in a tub of water the day before then fill it up on the day of the trip. With Ma n Pa then 5 kids that bag didn't last long especially on the 8 1/2 hour trip from Sydney to Taree for a holiday. I think it got refilled at the Oaks at Hexham then that was it until he finished the driving.
