Seen in Juneau, SE Alaska in 1982. At
the time, there were no roads that
connected land-locked Juneau, the state
capital, with the outside world, eg. the
Pan-American Highway, and the only
way in or out was by boat, like the ferry
that shuttles between Seattle and
Juneau, or by air. Consequently,
Alaskans are more likely to own and to
travel by a float plane than by car. So
trucks like this one would have been short-haul affairs on the limited roads in and
around the capital and to Douglas Island, across the Gastineau Channel. Before the
days of strict health and safety rules (largely ignored anyway in the far north, where
more serious rules apply), this would have been an operational truck - a small hole in
the windscreen would not have bothered anyone, even at 30 below.
