Municipal Dust Waggon, c1907


This is a period advert from The Motor Car Emporium Ltd, of Addison Road North, Holland Park Avenue, London. The Motor Car Emporium was a dealer in Durkopp and de Dion Bouton vehicles, specialising in commercial vehicles. This advert shows a 'Municipal Dust Waggon', which would nowadays be known as a dustbin lorry, and although I can't tell for certain I believe it to be a de Dion Bouton chassis. The Dust Waggon boasts a 4 cylinder 20hp engine, with a speed of up to 12 miles per hour. Dust Waggons like this were supplied by The Motor Car Emporium to London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Sheffield, Hull, Wolverhampton, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and others.
