Lorries perform an important role in the society by keeping our shops and factories stocked with supplies. This has been the case for generations but each decade brings new developments to what is an ever-changing industry
The ’70s was a time when British lorry manufacturers were under increasing threat from foreign imports and the whole face of haulage was changing, with increasing use of containerisation taking over from traditional practices.
This book succeeds in recalling the era with a unique series of period photographs showing lorries in their real working environment.
Illustrated throughout with colour photographs.
