Alterman Transport Lines
A Truck Photographer's Diary
by David A. Bontrager
About the Book
Alterman Transport Lines, Miami, Florida, was a rather big company. During the early years Alterman was an owner-operator company, and then later added company trucks, but maintaining the owner-operators. Coverage in this book is from the 1950s thru the 1970s, which was an owner-operator era.
Dave drove truck in the U.S. for 40 years with over 3-million safe miles. He started taking photos of trucks as a young boy in the 1950s, inspired by his mother who took photos of his dad's trucks beginning in the late 1940s. He continues to photograph trucks today.
