We have a cracker of a photo to start you off this week, one to get our automotive followers drooling at the mouth. I see "Spencer's Coal" leads the livery on the lorry but there is not a lump of the black gold to be seen? Or is this more a story of Power? The fancy topiary on show should help with pin pointing the location.

The general consensus is that this Sentinel steam lorry is captured transporting tobacco leaf for W. Power & Company. One of several Poole commissions relating to the merchants (of seed and tobacco) that we've had over the years. Given that yet another image in the catalogue captures the same lorry entering the Power's Glenville premises (on the Dunmore Road outside Waterford city proper), it seems plausible that this image was taken on the grounds....
