The picture of me at Cissie's cafe: The high-rise flats behind my lorry, were the very first of London's
new range of flats around 1953. In those days my vehicle would have been restricted to 20 mph.
We were allowed 4 hours to get to London, so by the time deliveries were done, there wasn't enough
time to return to Rushden. Bob.
