Photo is late 1950's at the earliest. The truck on the left is a Foden, possibly an S21 eight wheeler, introduced no earlier than 1958, on the right is a Foden F6 from the early 50's. Also in the background are Saxton Gardens Flats, completed in the mid 50's

I worked for BR in the 60's and spent a short time at Marsh Lane. There was a weigh office in Shannon Street away from the main warehouse. The rail vehicles are 'cemflo'and were discharged I think by compressed air to the road tankers of the cement company. BR also had 2 road tankers based on Thames Trader lorries. Further down Marsh Lane,the entrance near the station/rail bridge was the BR driving school. The railway trained many people to drive who then promptly left for a better job. People later had to sign a contract to work a cetain period after passing their test
