Fiesta 1.1L Van belonging to Orkney Business Equipment of 57 Albert Street. Registered on 1st June 1978. Colour- Nevada Beige (not the most popular of colours). Car in front of the Launderama looks like a Cortina Mk111 in Roman Bronze.

Are there any Cortinas in this pic?

Steven, your alarming lum was for the house above, not the coal office.Its no there noo as we took it down aprox 20 years ago.As well as all the bricks to take down, it was full from top to bottom with sticks and twigs along with quite a few bairns toys, bottle tops, ring pulls, chewing gum wrappers and other shiny things

Added by John Foulis on 27 November 2008
HBS 202R not P. This was indeed a Roman Bronze Cortina 2000e estate belonging to John Kirkness, Makora, Finstown. First registered 01/08/1976.

looks like a Bedford ambulance coming up the street, lovely to drive but not the most reliable. Ah, those were the days,
