Don, Mike, and David, you guys are pretty good. The only reason I know this truck is a 1911 Bessemer is it is written on the frame ! The Bessemer Motor Truck Company was started in Grove City, Pennsylvania in 1911, and this C.F. Ladner Hardware owned truck must have been one of their 1st models. One and two ton trucks were built powered by Continental engines. By 1925 trucks as large as 4 tons were being built. Bessemer's last year was 1926. The 1911 WAI photo is from the Minnesota Historical Society. The 1912 ads are from Dan Souday.
