My first lorry- May 1958
May 1958 and I recall my first real problem, delivery? I was receiving orders, from the advertising in the AERE news and now manufacturing paving slabs on a daily basis, but I had no way of delivering these heavy slabs to my customer. Remember this was 1958, long before Amazon! So I purchased a 30 cwt 1934 Vauxhall lorry from a local dealer for the grand sum of £17.50. This in turn, created huge tensions at home as the lorry could only be parked at the rear of my parents’ house. It was at this point when my parent’s decided to send me to the doctor and a psychologist, they were convinced I was going mad.
