Well, it looks like we scared most everyone off, but Stretch and Warren knew what they were looking at. This is a circa 1913 Mack 3 ton Senior, used on the road up Mount Wilson to build the John Hooker 100" telescope in California. It appears that the builders of the observatory used several Mack Seniors and Juniors. In 1917 one of the first Mack AC's carried the 100" mirror for the telescope up Mount Wilson to the new observatory. As Warren pointed out, it appears these early Macks had some cooling problems going up the mountain, that were solved with the AC models. Our photos are from the Huntington Digital Library.
