Kindly supplied by Graham Manchester, here is a photo of one of the Manchester trucks from Charlton.
Interestingly, Corgi have made a model of this truck.
Graham also reports;
'We were the first ones onto the site after the closure of the Gas Works and took up residence in 1976! That was interesting! We were told we had to be off not later than 1996 as the Millennium building was going to be built there (so much for bidding from Birmingham and Manchester!)
Hottest year for years and mutant ladybirds about 1" diameter each which used to dive bomb us and bite us! (among many other stories!)'
