Full image caption

At first glance it appears that this lorry is ‘loosing it’s load’ which is the wording of a note scribbled by Henry Grant next to this image on the contacts sheet however, there may be more to this story. The driver is looking not at the road but to the left and a rope can also be seen hanging from the boxes towards the pavement on the left. We will probably never know the full story.
