This is my Uncle Milt ready to return to northern Cal after delivering a load of logs to the Port of Long Beach. Taken in the late '40s or early '50s. There's a bit of a back story to trucking in that era: The speed limit for trucks was 47mph. To get to LA, he had to cross the Grape Vine (a pass in southern Cal that used to be notorious), and the trucks moved so slowly on the uphill grade that the drivers sometimes got out and walked beside them. Another favorite pastime was reading the newspaper!
