Morris J Type Vans

Morris J-type Vans used by Yellow Express on 1950s

One look at this photo takes you back to simpler times… men wore hats and ladies dressed with gloves and scarfs, someone else put the petrol in your car for you (and checked the oil!), stores closed on Sundays, computers were in books (not in your pocket) and the only creatures tweeting each other were birds in trees.
