Pickfords low loader on York Road

Pickfords low loader on York Road
17th February 1938. Just past the Red Lion Inn a Pickfords low loader is carrying an 81 tonne stern frame. There is a car parked at its rear and several people are watching. Note the solid tyres on the low loader.

This looks serious. Am i correct in thinking that the load has slipped. Those two arms seem to be touching the road.
