Need Pictures of Dugans Truck and Old Products - Sat, 09/20/08 2:43 PM

Does anyone know where I might get pictures showing Dugan's Bakery Trucks or any of the old products?
My Uncle Ben, was a Dugan's Truck Driver and is celebrating his 100th Birthday.
I would like to make a memento for him.....

I found one web page that has a photo of a Dugan's truck made by Divco:

Click on the thumbnail labeled Dugan's for a larger picture. I have also seen a large black and white photograph of a Dugan's truck in a restaurant or fast food joint in Queens, but can't remember where. It was one of a number of old time photos they decorated the restaurant with. The pictures looked like they came from an image bank, photo library, picture archive, etc.

Check Out this site:

I remember these old trucks from the 1950's. They would deliver the milk in glass bottles with paper caps to the doorstep and in the winter, the milk would freeze and pop the paper cap! Then we would eat the frozen milk like a popcicle!

According to the history of Dugans trucks, foodbeme's pics are the ones Dugan's used....i could be wrong...

Annie is correct. Those are the trucks they used. Unfortunately, I don't think any of those Pic's have the Dugan's paint job on them. There seem to be enough other links and sources on that web site that might lead you to one with the paint job on it. Maybe that guy who is restoring ones for his dairy might have a source for you.

jesusluvsunme7,

Just sent you an email via this Forum with this link to my collection of Dugan Divco pix.

Now I see I can also use this Quick Reply Message to broadcast this link to all the other members.

P. S. - The best shot is one of a restored 1954 Dugan Divco in Riverhead NY.
