Bedford TJ – A Vintage Fascination

OLD BEDFORD Lorries form part of the few vintage transport that still remains in Mauritius, and is greatly admired by many both as a symbol of British and a memory of the 60s/70s. At the time, they were primarily used for carrying sugar cane, and even now some are still used for that purpose. Here is a collection of the few we have come across at different regions round the island. Enjoy! BTW, all these are single appearances! There is no duplicate in the images, and their immatriculation number differs, even though same colors may appear.
