Canley Car Deliveries

“My father worked for Canley Car Deliveries whose storage depot was at Burton Green.

Around the 1959 time my father brought the drivers down in a van with bench seats either side to pick up cars from Standard’s factory storage area (it always seemed packed). On the opposite corner of Tile Hill Lane/Fletchamstead Highway junction was the Standard Cinema.”

Here is a picture of the van your dad must have picked up the ferry men in. Van is in the background with my dads car on the left. Pic is of my two brothers and me at Burton Green, I’m in the middle, with the three guard dogs that were there at the time.

Pic approx 1959/60.
