VE-Day in Sutton Bridge
This remarkable picture shows VE-Day in May 1945 at Sutton Bridge when all the children of the village attended a party at Tears haulage depot in Bridge Street and seemingly squeezed on to a flat bed lorry.
The picture is owned by Robert Tear, 53, who is still involved with the firm today.
He said: "The party was held on the forecourt of Tears. There was a dinner/dance held in the workshop and apparently donkey rides.
"The children on the lorry are kids from the village and one of the adults along the front is my granddad, I think."
Tears, which is mainly associated with roadside recovery work today, is still based at the same premeises in Bridge Street. In those days the legend on the truck says it was a 'Haulage and Ploughing Contractor'.
