Hi Craig,
Are all of these pictures taken in Derby, as the Castle Street Demolition certainly is - probably early 1970's when Castle Street was demolished to make way for the Eagle Shopping Centre (Now Westfield Centre) Bowmer & Kirkland have gone from strength to stength.

Ian , last two pics were the 'north east midlands' so guess this includes Derby.

Great photos there Craig :thumbup:
I love those little loaders, they would take a while to load a tipper these days.When your normal tipper size would be 6 cu yd in the 60's .When I was 8,I used to have a ride on my uncles Dodge tipper when he worked on a Saturday morning.I remember it looked huge.When you visit vehicle shows these days those tippers look very small compared with the modern kit.
