Antique vintage Roll-Rite hand truck/dolly in remarkable working condition for its age. Roll-Rite is a still-functioning manufacturer of industrial wheels and custom material handling equipment in San Leandro, originally starting in Oakland in 1935 specializing in casters and wheels. Judging by the metal plate on this hand truck, it was manufactured in the 1940’s, and most likely used on the Oakland docks for moving everything that would have come through the port. It has an exquisite angle balance that is a function of its wood and steel design, and contains traditional greased wheel bearings for smooth rolling. A real classic of mid-century industrial design.
