YALE Trucking “West Side Highway” 1988

This old truck was an ad for Yale trucking and was viewable from the old elevated West Side Highway which also was known as the Miller Highway a long long time ago…

  1. My brother and I, as wee lads, would go wild when we saw this truck driving from Brooklyn to the Bronx and back…I think the silhouette of the driver was particularly appealing…thanks for the black and white from ‘88…

  2. It was always a highlight of my childhood car trips to Brooklyn!

  4. The adults used to tell us the driver was going to get a ticket, “for driving off the road”!
