Hi List Members,

I came across this image described as "UTLX 56816 unloading Road Tar (Mid 1950's) "

I don't know the subtlety of difference between tar and asphalt, but there may be sufficient similarity to make this on topic.

Looks to be a scene illustrating unloading the car into a tanker truck.
