Due to the number of photos taken at the show (about 300) I am dividing this into three pages. Also as noted above the slide show is divided into six section of about 50 photos each.
The ATHS Annual Convention was held this year at the grounds of the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, MA. It really seemed that every square inch of the spacious grounds were covered with trucks of all sizes, types and shapes. I go t to see some trucks that I had never heard of before and some interesting modifications to trucks that were fascinating. I hope that you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
This apparatus responded to the tragic Hartford Circus Fire on 3 July 1944

Fire apparatus from the Westinghouse factory in Buffalo NY
This is a prototype of a device to clear the tops of tractor trailers of ice and snow. Very interesting and best of luck to the developer!
This wonderful Crosley pick up was tucked away in a corner so as not to get trampled over by its bigger cousins. To learn more about Crosley autos try here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crosley Crosley at one time also made a cute as a bug bi-plane called the Moonbeam.
If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page. Please sent to email@example.com To identify a photo just hover your cursor over the photo and a tag should pop up. Please use the last three digits of the tag to identify the photo. For example if the tag came up DSC03974.jpg (205067 bytes) the info I would need is 976.jpg. If this is a multi page unit the page number would also be useful.
