Henry Schlottman Transfer Co. owned the first large truck in Vicksburg, in the 1920s, and advertised that they had storage rooms and also moved pianos. The photo was taken by J. Mack Moore in front of Bock Fischel Dry Goods. The photo is from the Old Court House Museum collection.

Historic photos taken in and around Vicksburg are featured on Sundays in The Vicksburg Post. Many of the photos are from the J. Mack Moore Collection at the Old Court House Museum. Though not all photos were taken by Mr. Moore, they are part of the collection given to the museum by longtime Vicksburg Post managing editor Charles J. Faulk. Appropriate photos from the public will also be accepted and published. To submit a photo, contact Karen Gamble at 636-4545.
