A pictorial history of Sparrows International Crane Hire
A pictorial history of Sparrows International Crane Hire

This photo was taken about 1958/59.

I am standing by the original petrol pumps of the service station, Sparrows were still selling petrol at that time and the Transport Cafe was still open to passing traffic.

Frank with Dave Moon stop for a break on the road to a project at Burton on Trent.
This was my first crane a 15 ton NCK, Alf and me collected it from the NCK works at Chapel Town, Sheffield.



Alf with Frank leaving Bristol for Grenoble to meet Montalev to discuss the formation of the joint venture with the Gottwald 1000 tonne crane.
