Horse Drawn Parcel Van, c1910
This horse drawn parcel van, built around 1910 for the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway, is typical of horse drawn vans used in the thousands around Britain in the Edwardian era before motor vans became more commonplace. They were typically staffed by two - one to drive it and to make the deliveries, and the other to keep an eye on the van to make sure no one stole anything from it whilst the other staff member was away!
