THE DORSET STEAM FAIR (40th) Part 4.
So here today we have part 4 of the Dorset Steam Fair blog, this one is mainly about Transport over the years. I'm afraid I know very little about most of these Lorries, Vans, Buses etc, I also didn't write down the Make/Model on these pictures, sorry.
So above an old "Bedford"which looked to me distinctly like a converted Ambulance.
Below, Lets start with something most Men can appreciate a Beer Barrel Lorry.
Please do click on any of these pictures to enlarge them, also to see others in the background.
Below, This Milk marketing Board Lorry was a Thames Trader, whatever that was.
This lovely "Morris" van, I do remember these being in regular use whan I was young.
This type of"Bedford" (CA I think) van,was one I used to drive a lot in my "Twenties" and brings back lots of memories.
Here below we have "Foden" and an "ERF" flatbed lorries, both in beautiful condition.
Below, a "Bedford" single Decker Bus or coach, they were the same thing in the 50s. I remember going off on several village outings on these, mainly to our nearest "Seaside" resort "Weston Super Mare". I also rember going to the "Model Village" at nearby "Bourton on the Water", at that time I lived in Stratford upon Avon.
This picture below has me completely stumped as to make or model.
Below, A big green Double Decker Bus, this "Skegness" one was made by "Bristol" motors.
Again below, I know nothing about this flatbed Truck except that its Livery is of the Brewery "White Shield".
Below this flat bed lorry has the "Hughes & Sons" livery on it, but i know little more.
Finally, no Fair blog would be complete without an Organ. this lovely edition played quite a few recognisable tunes, the one playing is one of these.
