Here's a brother to the ice cream truck.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walker_Electric_Truck

Walker Electric Trucks were battery-powered vehicles built from 1907 to 1942 in Chicago, Illinois and Detroit, Michigan. Initially designed and manufactured by the Walker Vehicle Company (not to be confused with the Walker Motor Car Company) in Chicago, they were bought by the Anderson Electric Car Company of Detroit in 1916, then sold to Commonwealth Edison of Chicago in 1920, and last to York & Towne in 1933.

In the background is the Packard Motor Car Co. assembly plant on East Grand Blvd in Detroit. 90% of it is still there today, it's the largest industrial ruin in the world!

Here are some vintage photos. I am not sure if they were posted before, if they were they are worth seeing again.


I think I posted this on Working Ford trucks earlier


This is a still frame from a movie.

I especially like the first pic. Rich and Barber must have bought a new Ford every 3 years. They have a 55, a 52, and the oldest is probably a 49.....

What year is the GMC?
