Description

Photo shows three men examining a wheat truck upside-down in a pasture. Handwritten on back: "Wheat truck wreck. Hesston, KS, 1944-1945? Lyle Yost-working for him. Lyle - standing holding his plans for the day. John Bergey, driver of truck, sitting on the body of the truck."

It is possible that this is the same truck shown in Item #1816 and that one of them has the wrong date.
