The Oswestry Truck Show 2006
The photographs below are displayed on a new page/browser window
The Oswestry Truck Show perhaps thought of by some a Lorry Show is an annual event. The small photo on the left shows Bartlettís of Coventry, more of their old trucks can be seen in the gallery below. Oswestry is a Shropshire town located on the Shropshire Welsh borders. This Shropshire Welsh border region is often known as the Marches of Shropshire. This Truck show has good followers from England and Wales. This first section on this page has photographs taken at this 2006 Show. Photographs are taken in SHQ JPG. This quality is more than enough to provide large wall photographs of A3 size, however even the compressed size on this website page would provide a very good photograph for A4 or any full cover book, you can try a test for yourself by printing one for your own personal display use and be satisfied with the quality, however of course uncompressed photographs/images are available for commercial use on request. All images on this site are pixel coded for identification regards copyright protection.
This and other pages are fully printable unlike many software-produced websites.

The Hawthorn berries can be seen on the bush tops, they are quite red and near ready for the birds to eat as the season moves on. --
English Countryside of patchwork fields with discarded farm equipment. On the horizon a long hill which is a product of ice age glacier movement south, it stopped on the other side of this hill range and left an long edge known as Wenlock Edge.--
Welsh Countryside mountain top roads The White Van Man about his or her daily business feeding the goods into the society we live in.
If it all stopped (society as we know it) because we had none or little oil, where would we be, the answer is ruled by other none democratic countries, at the mercy of dictators. Some may not like the system we have in the so-called west, but itís the best and safest (because its democratic) system. Some would like to hand it over to fervots (a person who can boil over) then the whole world would change, your kettle would not work, the lights would go out, food and supplies would often fail to get on the shop shelf Ė the world would become like much of Africa, chaos, confusion, disarray, turmoil, anarchy,,,,,, killing,,,,,, need I go on,,,, remember the phrase,,,,,,,,,,,, Thereís no system like no system! So we have to face up to and remove by whatever means those who have no value for human life, as in WW2, think about it!
Welsh Valley or Countryside Wales has some wonderful places to explore, away from the tourist resorts or main resorts, why not give it a try for a break! Drive with care, take it easy, no rushing, relax!
Welsh Harbour with boats at rest Tranquil peaceful, nothing quite like it when the weather is fine, but in a storm its not where you want to be for long, better on terra firma with a roof over your head and the glow of a warm fire.
Welsh Harbour again Another photo of the same boats in a different setting. The location is Fishguard old harbour.
One man and his Boat in the old Fishguard Harbour inner area.
Milford Haven Cleddau Bridge Bridges are interesting structures, there are so many different types, and time invents new designs, all able to support our HGV's passing over their spans.

Shropshire Hills & Making hay while the sun shines, farmers see all the weather good and bad and need to be able to cope with it all. Driving a tractor on hilly country is not for the unskilled, it can be very very dangerous, so all you tractor drivers take care out there,,, also please pull over at once or every opportunity as they do in France when on the main roads, its good manners and HGV drivers will thank you for it, wont you chaps! Yes of course you will, give them a wave of thanks! We all have a job to do!
