I think that the McEwan's truck is a Morris-Commercial, not an Albion.

Location might be in front of old St Enochs station in Glasgow centre, with background tram running along Argyle Street; station demolished in 1970s and now a big shopping complex.

With the radiator wider at the bottom compared with the top, looks like early 1930s Leyland to me. (The 'nudge bar' maybe a later addition?)

I thought aboutLeyland but thought it looked a bit small, sort of 30 cwt-ish.

The other thought, from the radiator shape could be Thornycroft.

Side-lights on the cab, the bulkhead shape plus the radiator says its a Leyland I believe.

The only similar Thornycroft (from 1931) I can find is different in these details.
