When I was an apprentice painter I was working on this building,one day a large truck with a load of glass from Pilkingtons Glass Works arrived, the yard Foreman told the driver to go round to the other entrance, the driver would not as he said 'he was in a hurry', the Foreman was mad but said 'o.k'. When the stockmen had taken the load off, the driver could not get the truck under the arch because the truck had risen up and the weight was off, the driver had to let the tiers down to get out then wait for the breakdown truck to blow them up again. I guess he did'nt save any time.
