I Spy Road Transport News Chronicle

Another of my favourites, full of great vintage commercial vehicles, all well illustrated, and none of which could be seen today outside of a rally or transport collection.  Published in 1955, News Chronicle updated it five years later, with a more modern vehicle (a car component transporter) on the front, and a number of new vehicles inside. The third editioin kept the same art and just removed the News Chronicle references. I do not have the fourth edition but imagine it might have needed further revisions. Matchbox Toys made a model of the tipper truck seen on the first cover in their early 1950s range. D W Ovenden did both covers.
