Kingsway Calgary terminal. What a beautiful terminal facility with large offices and shop. I believe it was a regional office and break bulk freight hub terminal of all of Western Canada. These photographs were taken after the merger with Motorways. Note the mixed set of pups, a Kingsway and a Motorways in the center picture.
Here are a couple of pictures, one of my father in 1986 in his Ford 9000 before leaving for Toronto from Windsor. My Father's name is Marcel Delisle and was domiciled out of Windsor, Ontario. The other picture is that of Kingsway Transports employee handbook I came across in some things at my Mom's house. My father worked for Kingsway for Over 35 years and had 3 million accident free miles before retiring in 1992. -- Patrick Delisle and Family
