Great Grampa's Truck

A second cousin of mine had this photo of my paternal grandmothers fathers truck. I never met the man and the only thing I know about the truck is that he would park it on a hot manure pile in the winter so that it would start easier. I believe that my great grandfather Starkey is the one driving the truck. The Starkey's and the Comly's (paternal grandfathers family) had farms next to each other in Bustleton, which is now considered Northeast Philadelphia. If the farms were still there you'd be able to take a bus out to the pasture to bring the cows in.
