A line up of trucks at the Denny's premises in Morgan Street, Waterford (?) Pigs and their products have featured here over the years as pig slaughtering and processing has long been a major industry in Waterford and Denny's were one of the biggest. The interest in this shot must be on the trucks, their makes and models?
Hopefully Denny's are not gone altogether from Waterford as Barbour's are gone from Lisburn.
Thank you for all the work on that yesterday, it was very entertaining to watch the story unwind!

    two of the trucks, with the longer bonnets, might be Austin 12/4 pickups dating to mid 1930s ....

    OK, the whole south side of Morgan Street was a Bacon Curing Establishment on the 25", where the Supervalu is on the streetview. If you look at the roofline on this streetview, we see the same chimney pattern from behind in today's shot.

    Denny's are still very much around Here's their website denny.ie/story/#year-henry_denny "A defining moment in Dennys history arrived in 1933 at an International Food Fair in Manchester, when Denny was awarded a gold medal for making the finest sausages, which is now in the Waterford Museum of Treasures. This gave birth to the Denny Gold Medal Sausage that we know and love today."

    WI1724 and the one to its' left on the end look a generation more modern and streamlined than WI1722 and WI1723 despite the sequential registrations. I wonder if they were bought right at the model changeover? On closer inspection they're different weight classes, 4 has eight-lug wheels while 2 and 3 have six-lugs. So Lord Nuffield dragged his feet applying a redesign across the whole line I guess.
