Toronto Trucking in Black and White.
« on: October 05, 2013, 04:49:42 AM »
Early 1960's.

Two carriers can be identified in the picture of trucks stopped at a light.


The White in the middle is from McKinlay Transport. They ran those Whites into the early 1970's!
The International is from Norris Transport of Hamilton. Norris survived into the early 2000's if memory serves.
The picture was taken in the harbour area.

This picture is of an oil delivery truck in 1954. I can't identify the make but since I was only 20 months old when the picture was taken it was very early in my truck spotting career.


A couple of interesting photos found on the Vintage Toronto Facebook site.
