|Details: The Ford D-series covered quite a range of options, the heavier models having larger engines and wheels. The latter are apparent in this rear view of D1000 10-ton dropside bolster lorry 1656F. The location is unknown but maybe Parsons Green, from where 1656F and many similar vehicles were used by the Works and Building department. As can be seen, the heavy loads have caused the side doors to bow outwards. Note that the bolster has end extensions to prevent loads slipping sideways.|

|Ray||It is Parsons Green with Harbledown Road behind. Many a Saturday morning as an 11/12 year-old I spent climbing the walls of the flats to look over into the yard! Eventally I plucked up courage to ask the gate-keeper (after 1pm of course) and it was open house from then on.|
