The ERF oil engined lorries.
As supplied by Parrs of Leicester.

Parrs were decidedly upbeat in their advertising for ERF lorries back at the start of WW2. Interesting that the artwork shows a young woman climbing into the cab of this classic truck from E.R.

This is one of a number of retro 1940s and 1950s motoring advertisements that I've featured here on
