This pair of twin MACK E-SERIES LOGGERS are hauling cut logs in the Pacific Northwest in the 1930s. Exact location and date are unknown, but from my opinion as a Mack truck enthusiast for 40+ years, this is a pair of what appears to be MACK EH MODELS, possibly EQ MODELS. Some 31,500 MODEL EH’s were produced between 1936 and 1950 with GCW ratings up to 40,000-lbs. I have another print of an EHT hauling logs for Row River Lumber Co., Dorena, Oregon in the early 1940s, so I know that a lot was asked from these relatively small but sturdy EH Macks. The EH was also used in some off-road quarry applications, and made in tandem axle versions. It’s also possible that these are the larger EQ Macks, built with a 45,000-lbs. GCW rating. Some 10,600 EQ’s were produced from 1937 to 1950. I believe the license plate on the lead Mack reads “38” but I am not certain of that. I think these to be gasoline powered trucks, using 310 to 354-cid gas engines. A 457-cid diesel was available in later models, but usually carried a “Diesel” emblem on the side of the hood. These Macks also have a single windshield wiper, small round rear-view mirrors, and no turn signals or cab lights. While the lead Mack is hauling 3 logs, the rear Mack is hauling a single large log. Any additional information you might have on these trucks would be appreciated if you would pass it on to me. Thanks!
This is an excellent quality reproduction photo, professionally printed on quality Kodak or Fujifilm paper, in perfect mint-like condition. This is NOT an ink-jet photo! This photo was professionally enlarged and cropped from an unused “real photo postcard” in excellent condition. I chose to enlarge and crop this photo to focus on the trucks rather than the scenery, and was very pleased that the photo maintained its clarity and good detail. The original postcard in my personal collection had printed in the photo across the left bottom: “Logging in the Northwest”, with “Christian 459” in the lower right corner.
.... any questions at all, please feel free to contact me. I try to be prompt with my email responses.
