"That was Vic Coudre's crew, a high-power crew. At this particular time in the early 50s, they had a job cutting Capitol Hill over from two-phase primary to the more modern, three-phase. They look like a bunch of vagabonds, but that was really a hot running crew."
"In the 50s and 60s, heavy crews were really in demand. They had a line truck that carried the foreman and the driver in front and the linemen in the little cab in the back. In the rear of the truck, the helpers rode. And then we had the Dodge Power Wagon, used to take supplies out to the job and do the various things."
