July 1951 BRS trucks pulling out of the Bermondsey Depot. Anyone recall where this depot was?

I can remember loading timber like this, we never relised how dangerous it was, over-hanging the cab and held on with ropes, that’s what we had,so that’s what we done.
If I remember right this all came to an end with an accident at the traffic lights on The Highway, East London, the traffic lights by the Rotherhithe Tunnel. The driver jammed on his brakes to stop and the timber moved forward,the balustrade collapsed crushing the cab, sadly killing the driver. Not sure of the year but around the early 1960s?,after this accident the law was changed stopping loading on the balustrade and over the cab.
