Jack carted grain on this in the 1950's & 60's, has a 4 wheel trailer on behind and I can't work out how he got that auger over to the trailer

Time to get up andd get going.......todays bad decisions aren't going to make themselves!!!

Photo has got to be later than the 60s. Speed limit is in kilometres.

Yes in kilometres. They did not want any speeding in that yard. Maximum speed is ONE kilometre per hour! About a third of walking pace. The slowest maximum I have seen is "Walking Pace."
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!

Looking back at it that photo is most likely 1974 so should have said late 1940's to early 70's

The truck is geriatric but the number plates aren't.

The F series dates from the early 70's so he's updated his plates.

I am wondering at the meaning of theses statements Zuffen, if you are saying that the F plates weren't used before the 70's that is not right

Yes it is an early WW2 6x6 GMC. The later ones had canvas roof on the cab.
