Great Picture Numanfan!

I believe there is a similar photograph taken at what must be Shawstead Tip in the '50's with a tip-up depositing its load. I think it's in the Meresborough Book "Chatham in Old Photograph's."  :)

This picture shows a 7 cubic yard Foden Tipping Wagon, purchased by Chatham Council in 1921.


It was used with a trailer for refuse collection in the High Street, and also used for hauling coal and road-making materials. It was sold in 1933 to someone in France.
