Details: The only thing in this picture that remains today is the tower block in the background, and hopefully the chap repairing 1390F! In the yard at Chiswick Works in the early 1970s, the Ford D300 distilled water tanker is to the fore. This was one of a number of service vehicles that were first registered in 1970 when trade-plate rules were changed. 1390F had actually been delivered in November 1966 as one of the first D-series taken by LT. Due to its specialised role it was destined to last until 1983, by which time its cargo was no longer required for bus batteries. Amongst the vehicles in the background is one of the AEC Regal uniform issue buses.
