Workers and their vehicles

The two vehicles nearest the camera both carry an F registration plate which means they were registered between August 1967 and July 1968. Scary to think that is almost 50 years ago.

These days, of course, the houses all look mature, with settled gardens. Quite a few have sprouted extensions but they still look solid and dependable.

    I think it would be interesting how much they cost then, in comparison to the yearly wage at the time, versus cost now and the average yearly wage?

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
