Trucking In Erie, PA-Part Four (1960)o

 This would have been the terminal shared by Wilson Freight Forwarding and Tarbet Trucking Company in 1960. Within a year Tarbet was acquired by All States Freight and Wilson moved elsewhere. The blue office addition would not have been there at the time and the dock doors were only only this side of the terminal, making it about a 10 door facility.
