Ford trucks - 1910's

These Ford trucks are lined up in front of the Ford garage at the corner of Fourth and Chestnut streets. The picture was probably taken between 1910 and 1920. It appears that the lettering on the radiator grills are the word "Iliff" which would refer to Frank Iliff who was an implement dealer in Minonk in the first part of the 20th century although it is thought that Bert Goodwin sold Ford vehicles at this location during that same time period. The picture is the courtesy of Joe Limbaugh.
