ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The original typewritten caption reads: "Model 103 International motor truck equipped with wood body and hoist and owned by Howard Beebe, Liverpool, New York. This motor truck was sold to Mr. Beebe by the Kesel Motor Truck Sales Company, of Syracuse, New York. Mr. Beebe is engaged in contract hauling work, and he utilizes his motor truck chiefly for hauling cinders, sand, stone, etc. He also owns a plow attachment for clearing snow. The motor truck owned by Mr. Beebe is shown in the photograph under the cinder chute at the Solvay Process Company's plant at Syracuse, New York. Mr. Beebe's motor truck has been in service for the past five months, and the total mileage at time of taking photograph (March 22, 1925) was estimated at about 12,000 miles. The motor truck is operated on all kinds of roads. In reply to the question, "Do you frequently overload?" Mr. Beebe said he is conservative in loading. Mr. Beebe is a very good driver and mechanic, and keeps his truck in very good mechanical shape. He declares that International service is A-1. This service is performed by the Kesel Motor Truck Sales Company, Syracuse, New York. The repair costs are very low considering the heavy work that is being done by this motor truck. During the winter, Mr. Beebe had a contract with the township to keep thirty miles of road open. During and after the storm of February 8, which lasted twenty-four hours and in which there was a fall of twenty-eight inches of snow, he cleared his thirty miles of road in a little less than five days. In some places there were drifts as high as nine feet. When he finished clearing the road, the tracks were wide enough for two cars to pass. The commissioners said it was the best work of its kind they had ever seen."
