The 1970s were to see a significant shift in the buying patterns of the nation's hauliers and road transport operators as vehicles from the likes of Volvo, Scania, DAF, Mercedes-Benz, Magirus Deutz, MAN, Fiat, Berliet, Saviem, Mack, Kenworth and White were to be seen in ever growing numbers.
Britain's Lorries in the '70s - from undoubtedly the UK's foremost photographer and writer on the subject - is your passport to take you back to that decade and times. 128 pages, 250 colour pictures of working vehicles photographed during the period.
