This eclectic scattering of vintage vehicles in the mid 1940’s, captures one of many site clearances that took place across the city of Norwich after the Baekdeker raids in 1942.

A Fordson 7V truck can be seen front left, as well as a hand-made bespoke workman’s tool trailer to the right, both with R G Carter branding.

This particular site was the Edward and Holmes shoe factory, where R G Carter built them a new modern, open plan factory and office building known as Esdelle Works.
