Truckin heck.

 I keep finding more photo's. I know there are some more in the wardrobe. Must be hundreds of them. I won't be photographing them all like this, too much work, and I don't need electronic copies of personal stuff. This is a test, how many to put in one photo. 16, 25, 30, or 42. I've got enough to paper my walls with them. 




Click on one to enlarge them. Must take a break now. I've just eaten lunch, and now I'm going to take Billy a walk. Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip.   ilona

  1. You are so creative Ilona that I am sure you would do a great job of papering the walls with them! Hope you have a nice walk with Billy. :)

  2. Do you think the old firm would be interested in seeing the photos?

    It seems to be quite a thing at the moment as lots of businesses are posting old photos on their Twitter, Instagram and web pages.

    1. I think they would. I have got far too many of Leicester Heavy Haulage, I will post a bundle off to them. I follow them on Twitter, and they sometimes post older pics, along with their biggest loads and newest trucks.

      I have lots of other trucks as well, mostly pics I took at Truckshows. I will send them to Truck and Driver magazine, or Commercial Motor.

  3. Is that a lot of trucks all the same or just one cab pulling different loads?

    1. I think there are four or five different trucks there. I started off on a 55 tonner, and worked my way up to an 80 tonner in the time I was there. The tractor units look the same size but the engines differ to cope with the heavy weights they are pulling.

  4. My idea might be an impossible task,because I wouldnt have a clue if it was possible to do,lol....but if that last block of 42,could that be printed on to paper then you could decorate your walls or doors with them and still be able to keep every one?.I decorated my kitchen just with things cut out of magazines.You could even use that size for wrapping paper that you could sell at any fetes you do..when we get back to normal!.That would be just the sort of paper that someone would buy to wrap gifts for a young child.Even cover a canvas to hang on the wall.I think its a great idea to send some to trucking places that you have worked for in the past but at least you would be able to make use of all of them this way...just a thought!xx

    1. It would probably be possible to get them printed onto paper, but it could be quite costly. Thanks for the idea.
