We're out of here tomorrow for a three week road trip to the west cost to see some National Parks. Will check in from the motels.

Edit: how come these pics didn't get resized and come in clearer


Tony,

As I stated in our email, a big thank you for sharing these two photos with me. I posted them to my FLIKR giving you credit, and will re-post them here as we agreed ---

Amazed at how similar the truck in your first picture is to the one used in this 1940's Autocar ad done by William (Bill) Campbell

Here we have W.J. Halloran of Providence, RI ---

Hopedale Pond Cleanup
Biggest Operation Attempted In Area

HOPEDALE - Hundreds of "sidewalk superintendents" watched one of the biggest
excavation and cleaning operations in this area, yesterday at Hopedale Pond.

A huge crane, with an 80-foot arm and a scoop bucket with a capacity of nearly three
yards, was the center of attention as it loaded huge trucks in two sweeps. The trucks can
carry over six yards of earth.

Operations began near the beach section of the pond, and the depth of slime and silt at
this point was more than four feet.

The W.J. Halloran Co. of Providence is doing the work, which is supervised by Supt.
William McCarthy and William Polleys, manager of the crane department. The crane
operator is Fred Bourasso of Woonsocket.

The plan is to work around the pond, towards the Draper Corporation plant.

A 20-ton bulldozer and two trucks are now being used, but later more equipment will be
brought in. Earlier this week a smaller crane was at work laying a gravel road to the site of
the digging, and a small bulldozer became mired in the mud and had to be pulled out.

This is the first time such a large cleaning job has ever been attempted in this area. The
pond has been drained except for a small stream which still flows through the center.

I've been doing some research lately on the truck lines depicted in the 1940's Autocar ads done by my friend William H. Campbell (Bill). Let's start with Heavy Hauler ART BROCKMAN of Detroit --

Start with the ad ---

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. A Republic is a well-armed sheep.
