Loaded market lorries built by Gibbs and belonging to W. Barker & Son of Laleham on Thames.

Gibbs specialised in building vehicle bodies to meet customers’ specific needs. They bought in the chassis frames and built on a body for a particular purpose, often to the customer’s specification. Lorries used to carry crates of produce to market, for example, had a high front and a slightly inward sloping base to prevent the crates falling off as they only had ropes to secure the load, this being the days before sophisticated modern strapping.
