Pagefield lorry.

Another shot of the same lorry taken from a slightly different vantage point. The signage on the gable end of the building which cannot be seen on the previous photo appears to include the word ' Freight '. This may provide a clue to the location.

I found it on Grace's Guide to British Industrial History Ron, under the heading Pagefield 1922. I couldn't see any mention about the photo being copyright or anything. Still, it's a bit too late now anyway I suppose. As you suggest, I would imagine, the clearer of the two shots, ( yours ) may have been selected for inclusion in some form of advertising literature. But again, that's just me guessing.

Regards. Ozy.
