Today's picture was taken in 1938 in Laurel, Mississippi. The picture shows a Potato truck delivering potatoes to the starch plant. The truck is being weighed to determine the amount of potatoes being delivered.
I had heard about the Potato Truck all my life buy had never seen one. There was an old expression, "What, do you think I just fell off the Tater Truck?" The expression meant something like, "What, do you think I am stupid or something". Has anyone else heard that expression?
