For our #ThrowbackThursday photo this week, we are linking two of the longest established names in the UK commercial vehicle industry, Marshall Fleet Solutions and TIP.
As you may be aware, MFS will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2022, whilst TIP celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. That’s a massive 99 years between the two companies.Awesome achievements by both companies.
This photograph goes back quite a while. Notice the phone number on the Marshall Scania tractor unit doesn’t have the prefix 1 on the Cambridge number! PhONEday was a change to the telephone dialing plan in the United Kingdom on 16 April 1995. It changed geographic area codes and some telephone numbers. In most areas a “1” was added to the dialling code.
So it was before 1995! Any idea when this photo was taken?
