Delivery Van

This van was registered in Edinburgh.  Perhaps all St Cuthbert's vans were registered there.

However, it may have operated in Glasgow.  In the back of this van is a set of scales labelled 'SCWS Ltd., Glasgow'.

The adverts are interesting:

Thank you to Ken Smith, Calgary, Alberta, Canada for clarifying whether this delivery van was likely to have operated in Edinburgh or Glasgow.

"I believe St Cuthbert's only operated in Edinburgh.

SCWS was the Scottish Cooperatives Wholesale Society.  It bought in bulk  and subsequently sold to the individual societies.

Great photos.

Thanks"
