I was fortunate to acquire this collection of pictures taken by Barry Sowerby through John White from Pro-Truck Magazine. Pro-Trucker Magazine is a Western Canadian trucking magazine with subscribers throughout Canada and the US. Barry had shipped a huge box of prints to Pro-Trucker Magazine, but the magazine were not able to do anything with them so they offered them to me. I will never refuse truck pictures, so I accepted the offer. The box was dropped off at our home and in a few weeks I went to work and scanned almost 2000 prints to put on my web site under the Barry Sowerby Collection. I had envisioned this collection to take months to complete, but I got into a great workflow and I had managed to scan all the pictures and articles in just over a week. The longer process was editing the scanned pictures and get them ready for a web site.

Barry really had the prints organized in a good way. So as I scanned the pictures I organized them the same way that Barry had. This made it easier for me later too when creating web pages and titles for each page. Each page title was the note that was on each package of pictures that Barry had set up.

I’m a west coast boy, so many of the company logos never reached to the west. So if you see some that I have marked as “unidentified”, please help me out and email me with the correct company name. And of course if I made a mistake in the captions, I would appreciate the correction.

Thank you so much Barry Sowerby for taking all these pictures. Even though they are only up to about 20 years old, many of the companies are no longer in business, so your work is a great historical record of truck traffic. Thank you too for shipping the pictures to Pro-Trucker Magazine and thank you John White for getting the pictures to me.

Since the Barry Sowerby collection has been on the web site, I have heard from many people telling me how much they are enjoying the collection. One person said to me that it is the best collection on my web site. Hmm. It really is a great collection.
