Golden Age of Trucking in Photos
« on: September 13, 2017, 07:01:17 PM »
I recently came into possession of 5 of these books by Donald W. Arnauckas which deal mainly with freight haulers and dump trucks in the Northeast. Lots of photos and descriptions of trucks from the late '40s to the '80s. I'd never seen these books before or heard of the author who is a member of the ATHS Nutmeg Chapter and am wondering if there are more books out there? ???

Thanks for the info re the tanker book. 8) I will be on the lookout for it. I see Don helped out at the old Museum in Milldale CT  :-\ which is long closed..........I visited there many years ago and it was pretty cool. Wonder what happened to all the trucks? ???

I know Don is very active in the ATHS Nutmeg Chapter and publishes their newsletter.  His new books are usually advertised in the ATHS's Wheels of Time as soon as they are released.  I think he told me that the tankers book would be available in October.  He has tremendous knowledge about trucking in New England from the early days until present.

Charlie- The tanker book is available now at the Connecticut address.  I can't remember the cost (ah, the beauty of old age!)  I do not know if he is working on anything new at the present time.

I received an email re the tanker book yesterday so here's some info for the tanker book + the other books in the series. $35 + $5 postage which is about average for a trucking book........well worth the price IMO if you grew up in the northeast especially. :)
