Opening Night of Walt Disney's Snow White

Post by modeleh » December 28th, 2011, 6:32 pm

My wife is a Disney freak, and is slowly dragging me into the vortex also. The history of the man and the early days of his film studio and park is what is particularly interesting to me, and my wife found this photo on some website and saved it for me. It is a small photo and I'm not sure how to enlarge it, she thought it was an AA, but on closer look, I think it may be a '32 BB, it doesn't appear to be an AA grille, but the grill appears to stand vertical and not laid back like the '33-'34s. The truck obviously has an aftermarket frame extension and tag axle setup, and one helluva spotlight. This shot was Dec,21, 1937. Just thought I would share it here for you fans of the big iron.

That's a classy looking piece of equipment. Looks like it has the generator behind the light.
