MEMORY LANE: Old lorries hark back to Grantham’s industrial past
Former Foden lorry owner-driver Colin Holloway brought some old truck photos into the Journal office last week.
One was of Alan Dunmore leaving the Invicta works in a Foden loaded with an Aveling Barford road grader. The Foden belonged to Lincolnshire’s leading heavy haulier in the 1950s and 60s – Geoff Munton.
The photograph here is of Colin’s own Foden from 1974 whilst the other picture is a shot of a 60ft trailered load leaving John Lee Steel on the back of an AEC tractor unit.
There will be more old photos from John Lee’s next week.
