The Old Truck

It’s amazing what you can find if you look closely at fields as you drive.  I found this truck in the city of Greer as I was driving in from North Carolina to visit family.   I don’t know a lot about the history of this truck or Barnhill Motor Express.  I did find an ad in the paper for the company going back to June of 1946 (here’s the link).  I also found a court summons allowing the company to operate in the County of Richland in 1973 (here’s that link).  There were a few more public records but I didn’t dig too deep.  It would be an interesting story to know the history of Barnhill and how this truck ended up in this field.
