British Army service vehicles outside H. T. P. Motors Ltd. Back Quay, Truro, Cornwall. Around 1944

Rebuilt service vehicles, spick and span and ready for the road, being handed over to Army drivers towards the end of the Second World War. During the war H.T.P. Motors 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 countrys growing demands. In 2018, this building is the Pannier Market on Back Quay, Truro. Photographer: Unknown
