Nice picture. Lighting seems to have improved since image #12440. Those tramlines seem mighty near the pavement!

Great picture David, I mind that lorry working around Kirkwall as a peedie boy. I think the other lorry Jolly's had was flat fronted, anyone confirm if it was an Albion as well?

we had an old Albion of Jolly's at Lyness when Seamud was there in 1975, it was a flat nosed one, had a starting handle on the front o it..

For your info Raymond, there used to be a scrapped Jolly's lorry in Deerness which was flat fronted. Shall try to gather more info/photo.
