The continued improvement of roadways and the dawn of the Interstate highway system in the 1950s was a boon to American industry in general and the trucking industry in particular. Railways no longer represented the only practical means of transporting goods from town to town and state to state. This marque-by-marque photo collection provides a comprehensive and nostalgic look back at the rapid development of tractor-trailer rigs which resulted during the decade of Ike and tailfins. Manufacturers like GMC, Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, White, Freightliner, Peterbilt, Kenworth, Diamond T, International, Mack, Autocar, Brockway, Sterling and more are shown hauling everything from Cadillacs to cabbage across town, up the coast and over mountain passes. Thorough captions describe the development and history of each model depicted in archival black-and-white and period color photography.
