Established in 1863, Wynns developed into a market leader in the heavy haulage industry. It was known for solving the most difficult problems associated with the movement of indivisible loads and the installation of the equipment on site for its customers. This work included many exceptional loads overseas.
Arranged by country, the photographs in this book were mostly taken by those individuals involved in the projects. This is very much a hands-on account of some extraordinary work, much of it in the 1970s. Loads of 150 tons and more had to be taken on unmade roads, even fording rivers, or other solutions had to be found such as rail/road transport.
There are fine images of Scammells and Bedfords in desert or bush with their loads for power stations. John Wynn himself accompanied some of the hauls and throughout the book his knowledgeable captions give full context for the photographs.
