Mysteries solved!


Duke Energy employee Brook Knutson thinks the Nashville Gas truck from photo 217 is a 1956 Ford F-250. He based his estimate on the front fender flare form, embossment around wheel well, wrap-around windshield glass, flat rear cab glass, and right side fuel fill on cab. He also took note of the dates printed on the truck bed box.
