Thanks for visiting the Lowcock’s Lemonade Transport memorabilia page. I am NOT affiliated with Lowcock’s Lemonade in any past, present or future capacity. I just share the same name. If you’re interested in the Lowcock surname you can read up Lowcock Genealogy and about me here.
This Lowcock’s Lemonade Transport page includes photos of Lowcock’s wagons, Lowcock’s trucks, and other Lowcock’s Lemonade delivery vehicles (including a collectible Lowcock’s Lemonade Lledo toy).
If you want to share photos, please contact me. I always try and give credit to the original source material.
A sincere thanks to Richard Lowcock, who is from the Lowcock’s Lemonade family. For the following first few pictures. Richard was the 5th Generation of the family to work in the business until it was sold in 1992.
This first photo is one of the oldest photos in existence. It’s of the original founder of Lowcock’s Lemonade, Joseph Lowcock. The photo has a handwritten note on the reverse dating it 1898, but must be in error as Joseph Lowcock passed in ~1892. Joseph Lowcock is standing, on the right of the photo. The photo was taken in Hartlepool.
The next photo is a photo is of Walter Joseph Lowcock standing with one of the Lowcock’s Lemonade horse-drawn wagons. The child in the photo is his son, Martin Lowcock (the one who passed in the 70s, i.e. the Grandfather of the Richard who sent me the photos). The photo was taken in their yard in Middlesbrough, now Cannon Park.
The following photo was found on TruckNetUK (posted by Brian Morris who has since been kind enough to send more photos). The photo is undated, but it is possibly a photo of Walter Lowcock (standing) who is the family member who led the move to Middlesbrough and the driver is Billy Raw. If you click on the photo below and look at the left-hand side of the rear left wheel, the name Lowcock is visible on the truck flatbed/tray.
The truck pictured below is another of Lowcock’s Lemonade delivery truck (Bedford). The photo is from Chris Hall, Teesside. The photo was taken in 1986. More information is available at the original source. A common question asked by people when they saw the truck was “is that (promotional) bottle full”?
The next photo seems to be of the same truck but from another angle (and an earlier photo). The Greta St address can be made out on the back. The large promotional bottle on the flatbed shows the flavor as being Dandelion and Burdock. Thanks to Brian Morris for this photo.
Additional photos (with thanks) provided by Brian Morris are below. Brian was involved in the supply of the trucks including a later model. When the business was sold, all of the vehicles went to Tommy Lawson’s collection of vintage trucks. Unfortunately, a fire destroyed them (and the entire collection).
This next photo is the Lowcock’s Lemonade Lledo collectible vehicle. These trucks occasional pop up on eBay UK. The truck was apparently a limited promotional run of 1500 units (according to long gone eBay listings). The box does say they are made to special order but does not detail production date or production run. I am including the only photo I can find that talks of the limited production run (certificate looks like it says 1988). I am not sure why the promotional run was made.
Please take the time to visit the pages of other Lowcock’s Lemonade memorabilia.

Thanks to the wonders of the Internet Archive, I am able to share some photos/images from Lowcock’s Lemonade.

I am interested in Lowcock’s Lemonade collectibles, old bottles, etc. purely because it features my surname.
