Arthur Spriggs
carrier of Higham Ferrers

Rushden Echo 16th September 1921, transcribed by Susan Manton

Accident—At about 8.15 this morning as Mr. Spriggs, carrier, of Higham Road, was cycling up the M.R. Station yard at Rushden, his machine broke in two and he was thrown to the ground. His face was badly cut, but happily, no bones were broken, and after receiving first aid at the station he was able to return home.

This lorry has hand written name, so and early lorry but no date for the picture.

It was taken in Spencer Park where the carnival procession used to assemble for judging.

In August 1954, the scouts were "delivered to camp" at Broadstone Warren, by an Arthur Spriggs lorry. [extract]
