Truck Photographer's Diary - 111

Vol. 11

Hodge’s Truck Stop

Lily , Kentucky

A Truck Photographer’s Diary, Vol. 11, Hodge’s Truck Stop – Lily, Kentucky, is intended to provide historic photographic documentation of trucks from a bygone era, primarily the 1950s, with just a few photos from the 1960s.

This is a very unique and rare collection of 182 photos. Almost all were taken in the 1950s and were hung on the wall of the truck stop. They definitely show their age and abuse, and are less than perfect, but I feel the historic value of the trucks shown out weighs the technical aspects of the photos.

While the documentation contained herein focuses on the equipment, many of the photos also include the driver of the truck.

Trucking was much different in the Fifties than it is today. Not only was the industry different during the regulation era, but the equipment, technology, and even the people were different.

All of the photos will view very well on screen. Pages may be printed for personal non-commercial use only – not for public distribution by any manual, mechanical or electronic means.
