Motoring and Transport – H9

Radford Bridge transport café, post WW1

Post World War One saw an increase in commercial transport on the road. Radford Bridge transport café was a popular venue for drivers and their mates either after or before taking on the long climb over Hindhead. From 1930/32, a view of a well loaded lorry carrying cast iron baths, the lettering on the lorry side shows the transition from horse to motor. The gentleman in the centre is Frederick Thomas Evans.
