Heated Seats

This fabulous Morris Commercial J2 was used in the late 1950s and ’60s. The van was driven by a lady called Anne Kelham, and because the driver’s cab is on top of the engine she would be guaranteed a warm journey on her rounds. Anne would deliver and collect outwork around Oakham. Work could comprise of assembling plastic flowers like the sweet peas in the photo. We still have an actual mid-century bunch in our archives and although the petals have faded a little in colour, they remain firmly in full bloom!
