Details: Various Ford D lorries are seen near the top end of Parsons Green Works on an unrecorded date. To the fore is D550 crew-cab lorry 1516F, new in April 1969 and based here continuously until it was withdrawn in December 1980. As has been mentioned before, the roadway that runs the length of the Parsons Green site was not very wide. Two lorries could just about pass each other, but turning around would have been impossible. I now know that there was an additional entrance near the top end, so perhaps this was used as an entrance, with the main entrance on Parsons Green Lane being an exit. It does seem that vehicles were always facing in that direction (see photos from the 1960s and 1980s). No, hang on, we also have photos of vehicles entering at the bottom end (such as 2376D).
