Lemon Quay from Back Quay, Truro, Cornwall. Mid 1940s, towards the end of the Second World War

A view from Back Quay towards Lemon Quay with the car park full of lorries. The Fire Guard Office stands left of centre in front of the Gas Works. West Cornwall Motors Ltd. and John Julian & Co. can be seen across the car park. Just out of frame, on the left, are the premises of H.T.P. Motors Ltd. During the Second World War, H.T.P. handed the Army most of their stock of cars and commercial vehicles and purchased transport generally for Government purposes. Large cars were converted to ambulances and essential civilian motor transport was provided and maintained. Ranging from armament production to the repair of Spitfire components, H.T.P.'s activities extended and multiplied rapidly with the country's growing demands. The parked vehicles are awaiting maintenance or conversion in the H.T.P. Auxiliary Army Workshop. Photographer: Unknown.
