Stuck in the mud

In February, 1921, dump trucks loaded with magnesite from White Rock Mine in Pope Valley attempted the trip to the railroad in Rutherford.  They got stuck in the mud at Angwin, as this photo, courtesy of the Harold Smith Sr. family, shows.  A much cleaner cousin of these trucks, a 1918 Pierce Arrow, was on display at Museum for a Day on March 25th, 2012.
