The tricycle van first made its appearance on the streets of Britain in the 1930s and it was a familiar sight as a small commercial vehicle right up until the 1950s.
One typical use was as a newspaper van, seen here in the cream livery of the Lancashire Evening Post. This model, registered CCK 98, comes with a black masked roof with bright post office red lettering, coach lines and mudguards.
The newspaper placard on both sides boasts the paper as being the Best in the North West. A final detail comprises the addition of a diagonal curved roof board in cream with red lettering, also promoting the Lancashire Evening Post.
