Photo Challenge: Mass Transit

Southampton was once "Home of the Ford Transit"

Docks-caravans-1

Southampton Docks is packed with Mass Transit scenes. Every type of vehicle from Rolls Royces and Land Rovers to JCBs and camper-vans, are exported around the world. Southampton was once “Home of the Ford Transit”. This was a Ford factory that produced white (though sometimes other colours) commercial vans, which employed thousands of people in my home town.

One of my first posts was about trying to keep the factory alive, but eventually it was demolished: https://wordpress.com/post/southamptonoldlady.wordpress.com/738

I took these snaps in a surround cinema inside the Stiegl Brewery in Salzberg, Austria.

A drink poured, then I realised that we were sat inside an epic-sized glass of unmellow beer.
