Esparto Grass Lorry -
might recall my
reminiscences about my dad taking esparto grass from Granton to
Balerno and Auchendinny in the 1950s.
Here is another picture of
his heavily overloaded lorry.
In those days, they didnít
bother about axle weights and regulations Ė they loaded up until there was
just enough room between the mudguards and the tyres for the wheels to go
This view might help someone
identify whether the photo was taken at Granton or one of the paper mills.
Last time, someone suggested it might have been Inverkeithing.
