I presume that picture is in England or other lefty country? Notice the spelling of centre and the locations of the steering posts.

That is a wide bed on the Lorry at left.
And how politely customers back into the parking spots...
Richard, the wide body on the truck on the left may indicate a special use for that vehicle. A number of trucks were used as haulage vehicles during the week, and then converted to passenger vehicles for weekend work. That wide front seat would certainly take a few bodies. Bus type bodies with open sides were installed on the truck tray, thus adding rows of seats for passengers. These conversions were called Charabancs.
Angaston is in South Australia's famous Barossa Valley winegrowing area. While most of the valley was settled by German migrants, Angaston was settled by English settlers. Tourism is a big business these days. Perhaps it was then also.

Thank You Allen B! I have heard of "Charabancs", knew they were something like a bus. But did not know of that distinction.
Great photo Jay! And thanks to all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
