When was this photo taken?  Perhaps somebody can e-mail me and tell me.

The photo is taken from a copy of 'BP News', a Bruce Peebles publication.  Thank you to Phil Mackie for providing the photo.

The caption to the photo says that the load is a 45,000 kVA transformer for the National Grid leaving the works on its 300-mile journey to Edinburgh.

Bruce Peebles' works were at East Pilton, Edinburgh, about 2 miles NW of the centre of Edinburgh.  I don't know what route it took.  The direct road from Edinburgh to Huddersfield in Yorkshire is just over 200 miles.
