1930s Lorry Driver invoice.This once belonged to a driver who worked for James Strick & Sons Ltd, of Llangyfelach Street, in Swansea, South Wales.
The artwork that appears on some of these old billheads and invoices is great I think. This invoice is dated 12th May 1936, but I suspect was designed some years earlier, if the lorries in view are anything to go by. Several solid tyres wagons are visible, many with 'C' cabs and no side doors or glazing to protect the driver from the elements. No clear registrations are visible on the delivery vans in the illustration, although curiously the Morris Cowley 'bullnose' parked in the middle of two trucks has a registration of 7429, perhaps this number formed part of the reg. on the company owner's own car?? Primarily the vehicles shown are flatbed lorries, with three fitted with additional canvas covers on them. It would appear that the company supplied fruit to the surrounding areas from their Greenhill Fruit Centre. The offices were at 162 Llangyfelach St and the town depot at 47 & 48 Orchard St.
