Looks like you got me beat by a little, here's a truck my Great Grandfathers had. He's on the left, my Grandfather is second from right. The little kid as best we can guess is an uncle that is still alive in his 80's. This was taken behind my Grandmothers house, she still lives there. the Gaylord Breaker in Plymouth is in the background to the right.

They did ice too, but not for long:

This is the Gaylord under construction in 1904 if I remember the date correctly.

There's another member (Oileyman) that has a picture of a high lift truck that is older than those trucks. It's impressive.

Hello Folks;,,

I'm one of the new kids to the forum.... Just wanted to jump in here and say thanks for sharing some of your old photos... Really enjoyed them..... I can remember my dad going down in the basement to put coal in the old boiler to keep the house warm during the cold months.... That was when we lived in Cory, PA.... Many years ago....

Thanks again for sharing some of your old photos..

...Dave
