Yesterday when John, Jerry and I went on a little photo tour of the area John led us to this old truck for our first stop.
This is one of the smaller Mack Trucks that I have seen and indeed it has seen better days.
We were guessing late ’40s, early ’50s for vintage.
Nowadays Mack Trucks are big and shiny and powerful.
Old houses in North Bay were built with red brick.
As time caught up with them, changes were made to accommodate newer lifestyles and other requirements. Some of the original features of the house are still evident in this photograph. The bricked in window and the re-bricked door are two. The external wires for cable TV and telephone, and the modern electrical conduit on the outside of the house all speak to changing lifestyle needs. The external fire escape tells of the change from what was most likely a single family home to a multiple-unit boarding/apartment house.
Life goes on…
