William Thomson & Sons -  Delivery Van

The van in this photo looks as if it may be new.  Perhaps somebody might be able to tell from the model or registration number of the van, when this photo might have been taken.

Incidentally, the shop at the extreme right of the photo above, H W Turner, Ironmonger, also features in this photo, possibly taken about twenty years earlier:
