Blast Back To The Past Via The Matchbook Cover

The Truck category includes some of the finest artwork of the late 1930’s-1950’s. Many truck lines had full color, full length matchbooks produced featuring their trucks on the front. Many also had route maps printed on the inside of the covers.

Many cities, states, and regions were noted on the front of many truck line covers seeing as most trucking firms had terminals throughout their service area.

While this category is made up mostly of truck lines, it also contains truck service agencies, moving companies, truck rental firms and storage facilities. Most storage facilities back in the day were owned and operated by moving companies/van lines.
