Focal Point: Shovel Truck • Hubley – 1929

 In Steve Butler

By Steve Butler

HUBLEY ISSUED factory catalogs, updates and flyers, and all serve as the best sources for information such as model number, model name and date issued. (However, per information directly from a former employee, Hubley would carry over toys in their publications after ceasing production in order to eliminate the existing inventory.)

The pictured toy is Hubley’s model number 346 Shovel Truck. The only factory catalog found in which this shovel truck appears is the company’s Catalog No. 3. Although not dated, that catalog is believed to have been issued for 1929.
