Artist's Description

Lancashire Lass – a Family Connection

Number of views as of 30th August 2017 = 790.

I was delighted to find this Gardner diesel-engined 1957 Atkinson drop-sided lorry at the Great Dorset Steam Fair.

Not only because it’s a fine vintage commercial vehicle, but also because there’s a family connection.

George Preston was in fact my uncle, whose father (George senior) started the fuel and haulage business in Earby (England) on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border. After the closure of the Colne to Skipton railway line, the company had their depot at the old station yard in Earby.

Date: 4th September 2010.
