Initially lightweight and lacking force, the tow truck has become larger, more powerful, and very useful. Today, with an estimated 350 million cars in the world - one third of them in the United States, these trucks have become a necessity in the automobile industry. In the 1920s, when the truck pictured on this stamp was in use, mud was the number-one driving hazard.
