News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Reply Potters Transport Tower Hamlets. I worked there in 1965, drove a bull nosed Bedford with a canvas cover over the back like a wagon, My first job was East India Docks to pick up a load of timber. I stayed the night in the cab as they sent me to Tooley Street. I paid for the night through a hole in the wall and went upstairs to this huge room with cardboard partitions. The smell of feet was unbelievable, so I left and stayed in the cab, needless to say, not much sleep.

There was another tipper company called Augers, I think. They had orange coloured TK Bedfords. Also there was Parham's of Gillingham and Palmers of Wigmore that also ran under Wigmore Transport & L J Palmer.

I remember Wallis tippers, blue TK Bedfords, I think. One forced me off the Allhallows Road, once, into a snow drift. Took me ages to get out. Wasn't there another tipper company called Whelhams, or something, from Strood?
Whelham and Thompson Strood Ltd. I worked for that company also, red J type Bedfords, they used to have a gravel pit at Allhallows, which once belonged to another tipper haulage company...Colin Teers if my memory is correct.  :) erfman
