    Default Local lorries and vans in the 1950/60s

    Does anyone have any pics of these vehicles such as W.Costigan, Waterworths, Schofields, Scotts and local hauliers of the time.
    Also if anyone can remember what colours these vehicles were painted.
    Any help please.

    Scotts were red. Waterworths were green.
