Memorial services are being held for Erv Bickford this weekend, so we are featuring another truck from his collection. Emblem removed. Photo from Erv's friend Daryl Gushee.

MASTER

Agree with Don. Master. My sympathies and prayers to Erv's family.

It seems we scared most everyone away with this one, except for a couple diehards. Don and David are correct, this truck is a Master, a 1919 Master Junior to be specific. Master trucks were built in Chicago from 1917 to 1929. Models ranged from 1-1/4 to 6 tons in capacity. Masters used various Buda powerplants. Thanks Daryl for this neat pic of Erv's truck. The other pic is from Don.

This is a fairly recent picture of the Master Junior with Erv showing it off.

Here is a Master (actually 3 of them) from the Campo, CA truck museum - sometime in 2006.

This Master located in a collection at Cheyanne, OK. (Just to the right of the Douglas)
