Such a pity more old lorries were not saved. The old Fodens and ERF's really are things of beauty. A mid sixties Foden tipper truck would do me nicely for Sheffield traffic wankers. 

A two stroke Foden engine sounds immense.

Bracebridge Mental Hospital was in Lincoln. Called 'St John's'. The wagon has a Lincolnshire registration (TL) too...

The other Lincolnshire registered wagon (this time FW) Osgerby's coal & coke...Osgerby's haulage were based in Barton on Humber and ran a predominantly Volvo fleet from what I recall.

Quite a lot of the Leyland Beavers in preservation started life as mobile chest x-ray units. Low mileage and long service lives ensured survival. Tuberculosis was the main reason for their existence. The good old days, eh??

Citroen Bijou...interesting old thing...guess it was just an old hack then...

Anybody know what the pick-up is in the background of the Mustang pic. It was the first thing I noticed. (Mustangs are Meh...)

At first I thought Mini, but going by the wheels/hubcaps/rear lights I’d say DAF. Plus it appears to be at the back of a DAF dealer stand, going by the flag at top left. 

I love the mustard Daimler Sovereign parked across two bays on the previous page, just shows parking like a tw@t to keep the oiks away is not a new thing!

Are the funny little vans with the single headlights electric?

I love the  blue ‘Dorothea Restoration Engineers’ one, particularly with the bored looking apprentice in the passenger seat - I say seat, it was probably a milk crate. 

He looks like he’s regretting not working harder at school!
