Ford D Series and Thames Trader
Both these lorry's were operated by the late John Coxen, a coal merchant from North Somercotes in Lincolnshire. Note the wooden body on the D Series with 'greedy' boards and the loader behind the coal stage. The Trader was red and maroon, not sure about the D Series although the fuel tankers were painted light blue. I have no idea when this photo was taken but the 'D' would have been fifty in 2016.
