How Many Tires???


These are more pictures I found in Grampa and Grandma G's travel album from a trip they took to the US West back in the early 1980's. I wasn't sure why they took a picture of this heavy equipment truck ... maybe it was the stark shadows???


Then I realized their interest. The large truck was catching up to this convoy of vehicles moving what appears to be a massive tank of some kind. There are at least 3 people visible in the photo.

Look at all of those tires!

Join us over at Al's "Sunday Scans", as we share all things scanned ... we want to see YOUR old stuff!

To see shadows from around the world, visit "Hey Harriet" for Shadow Shot Sunday!

That vehicle carry the tank is unlike anything I've ever seen. I wonder what the tank is for? We sometimes get trucks carrying radioactive waste going down our local interstate, but those look totally different.

Love looking at old photos and seeing what family members took photos of. Great shadows in the first picture and the tank in the second one sure is Big. Thanks for sharing!

Good gravy--I wonder what the tank was for! I've never seen anything like it--let alone a vehicle with so MANY wheels--that tank must have weighed tons!

perhaps it was the first time they had ever seen something like this
