Having been invalided out of the Canadian army 'Ted' Trump moved to Oliver,
in the Okanagan Valley in the eastern foothills of the Canadian Rockies
where he started a business repairing and servicing farm equipment. Apple
growing was the big local crop and injuries among the apple pickers from
falls was a frequent occurrence so in 195/1952 he invented an machine he
called the Giraffe.
The rest is history.
