A Diamond T trucks

Courtesy of Bob Apalsch, this is the first of some very interesting Diamond T factory truck photos we will be sharing with you. Bob had the following to say about this photo: The Kashou Company still exists and is owned by the same family. I grew up in the same neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisc. I’m sure that the image was taken in Chicago prior to delivery North to Milwaukee.

Below we have a much later and very beautifully style Peter Pirsch pumper truck on a Diamond T cab and chassis. Note the highly-styled grille, hood, cab and fenders along with the special Diamond T hubcaps.

Hopefully your knowledgeable readers will be able to date and tell us more about these fine trucks.

  1. I came accross this photo and was amazed. I am the third generation Kashou in the carpet business and yes we are still on Farwell ave. 103 years later. Though the address today is different, the building my grandfather built, still houses our operation. I would love to know what year this truck is.
