Cracking image of this decaying lorry and excellent title. Have not seen one of these for years; so ubiquitous on our roads thirty years ago, very charecteristic corner windows on the cab.

Think your being generous there Nigel, these lorries were around about 50yrs ago. I drove a very elderly version of this type about 20yrs ago as a charity bus for Headway.

For rust bucket Cliff just put "BL"

Good photography. You seem to be trying different makes of film in your last posts. Was this with a Cannon 35mm?

Hi Ian
This was taken with a 35mm film version of a bridge camera called a Konica Aiborg. It was Konica's answer to the award winning Olympus AZ300 (which I also have). I was trying it out to check picture quality and lens contrast.

I've sice gone back and taken other images with my Bronica 120mm so will ppost those sometime as a comparison. If you're interested the Olympus is still the better camera, but the Konica is quirky.

Just needs some t-cut and a little t.l.c. to be good as new! actually, it is probably more reliable now than when straight off the production line! its a good job the owner is a member of the R.A.C. so they get a free lift home!.................great mono, Mr. V. lovely contrast and detail. interesting to see the modifications time and weather has affected.......................phil Grin
