With my father being both a bus and truck driver most of his working life, my uncle running a large quarry in the Adelaide hills and myself working for the South Australian agent for Perkins Diesel Engines over a twelve year period, it is probably only natural that I grew up with an interest in commercial vehicles. Although I have owned a camera since my mid teens, I never thought to record any of the trucks that I saw in everyday life. It wasn't until the early nineties and after I had seen a copy of the American Truck Historical Society [ATHS] magazine "Wheels of Time" with all its wonderful photos and stories relating to old trucks, that I regretted not taking photos of the trucks that were a part of my growing up. The fact that those nostalgic old photos aroused in me memories from the past of old Fodens, N series Macks, KB Internationals, ex-army Diamond Ts and many more familiar marques, prompted me to start recording the local trucking scene so that in years to come hopefully my photos may give someone the same pleasure.
