Keywords: vehicle, collection truck;Bronx;vehicle, front-end loader
Issue Date: 4-Oct-2007
Series/Report no.: 763
Abstract: Four photographic negatives blown up on one page depicting different types of Department of Sanitation trucks.
Description: The photo in the botton left corner is of a tuck with a sign reading "Once They Got By With This." The truck appears to be an old front-end loader. The photo in the bottom right corner is of a Department of Sanitation collection truck. The photo in the upper left corner is of a collection truck on the Bronx night squad with a sign reading "We Work Quietly While You Sleep." The photo in the upper right corner is of a front-end loader, more modern than the one pictured in the lower left corner. Both front-end loaders were photographed in the exact same location. On the back of the page are the numbers "763", presumably identifying this page as part of a series, the date 1937, the letters "MDK" with a stamped smiley face, and the word "Yes," underlined.
