1950s' Commer Superpoise.

This photo was taken at the corner of St Lukes St in Manchester, sometime during the 1950s. Two cars are in shot, a rare Mk2 Consul estate (VNE 90), and a 100E Ford Prefect (PKU 617). The small lorry is of interest too - a Commer chassis & cab, fitted with a coachbuilt van body for a firm called Hunter's. A small oval window is set into the Commer's rear van sides, with what looks like three gents in hunting attire sat at a table, ready to eat. Does anyone remember Hunter's, or what they produced? The van's registration is OKF 798, a Liverpool series first used in July 1953.

Here's a closer look at the Commer, with the driver sat behind the wheel. Fitted with single rear wheels only, it suggests a lightweight version of the popular Superpoise range, perhaps 2 ton.
