Unfortunately there is more sad news. Edgar Browning, heavy equipment expert and author of the "Roadbuilding In ...." book series, lost his battle with lung cancer on Tuesday. Edgar was also the editor and publisher of Shovel Magazine. Edgar had amassed a vast photo collection and was kind enough to to give me permission to use many of them in the WAI over the years. Edgar was a great friend of the WAI and his loss has left a huge void among heavy equipment and old truck historians.
Tonight's WAI is one of Edgar's photos, and is rather unusual in that it does not feature any construction equipment.
