We have all become dependent on commercial vehicles to support all aspects of our lives. Goods and service vehicles collect and deliver items, distribute products, remove waste and support service industries. Gloucestershire Goods and Service Vehicles is a pictorial record of the many vehicle makes and types used by Gloucestershire's road transport operators during the last hundred years. It covers horse-drawn, steam, petrol, diesel and battery powered vehicles, ranging from the heavy hauliers with their eye-catching specialist tractors, to the rather humbler floats of the local diaries. A wide range of businesses are represented.
