Mack Snowplow - George J. Zaffo

This is how it looked while restoring

I have spent the better part of today trying to restore this illustration by George J. Zaffo. It is the last picture of my childhood book mentioned in a previous post - THE BIG BOOK OF REAL TRUCKS.
This was a challenge, as I had tried to repair the page some time ago using masking tape. Sometimes I must admit to not thinking about future consequences - this must have been one of those times. So, my apology to the memory of Mr. Zaffo. I tried my best to bring this picture back.
It can't, however, begin to compare it to the original.
