LMS Route: Nuneaton to Leamington

Bedworth Station: lnwrb3269

Bedworth's station master and draymen from the Goods Shed pose for a publicity photograph with a large delivery of Ale

Bedworth's station master and draymen from the Goods Shed pose for a publicity photograph with a large delivery of Ale. The photograph is of interest as it appears to show the same station master as seen in image 'lnwrb3267' and an office which has nearly doubled in size to that seen in image 'lnwrb3258'. Peter Lee writes in his book 'Nuneaton, Coventry & Leamington Railway' that the consignment of beer has been unloaded, in barrels and bottles, to be distributed to the many pubs in Bedworth to 'slake the thirst of hard working colliers'. He notes too that the yard held thirty-eight wagons in total.
