This picture was the driveway of a local Electrical Wholesaler who was in business in Peterborough for decades.  Anyone local to Peterborough will remember Harry Donnor... This picture was taken at his first premises before the move to Werrington where he remained until the closure a few years ago. It seems a strange way to make a van!

Harry Donnor... now there is a blast from the past!

As a trailer though, "fifth-wheel" type trailers/caravans are common in Canada and the US; a former Canadian colleague had one on his Ford F350 truck.

Oh yes.... good 'ole Harry.

If he didn't stock it, it wasn't worth having !
