A new Midland Railway Carriage & Wagon Company Ltd 8 ton 5 plank coal wagon destined for Kings Heath

A new Midland Railway Carriage & Wagon Company Ltd 8 ton 5 plank coal wagon destined for Kings Heath. Barrie Geens states that FW Russell, coal merchant, had a base at Kings Heath from 1910 to 1931, which means that the wagon seen above was purchased at the time the business was established as the photograph was taken in 1910. The livery is not known but it is thought it was white lettering on a black background.
