1967 A1 Dairies, with 60,000 customers in North London and Herfordshire, joins Express - Morrison Electric negotiates a ford near Welwyn Garden City.Robert Gayton comments "This photo looks suspiciously like the ford in Fulling Mill Lane, Welwyn and close-by to where I live, some 20 miles north of Whetstone. Did the A1 Dairy really have a round that came this far out? 40 miles there and back plus the round to do without the battery conking-out? I can't quite believe it. It must be a publicity picture."
