A view from the cab of Fred Horrod's lorry as he prepares to go under a low railway bridge on his way from Manchester to London. The original caption states that on his previous journey north, Fred had a high load and so had to make a detour of 6 or 7 miles. His low load means a much more straightforward route back to London. Through the arch of the bridge ahead, several other lorries can be seen.
