Daimler Bottle Lorry

On Display

For almost as long as there have been motor vehicles on the road, publicity-conscious firms have built special bodywork to advertise their products. The first bottle appeared on the roads in 1906. Other such vehicles were transformed into tubes of toothpaste, wireless sets, batteries, bottles of ink, teapots, barrels of beer and so on. It is believed that only four or five of these TL30 Worthington bottle lorries are still in existence.
