As much as the early 1900's saw a huge increase in motor vehicles on the streets of Great Britain, the horse was still by far the biggest method of transport on the roads, and so stables like these were commonplace. These stables would be used to house horses used to pull wagons, carts etc, and known as 'livery stables'
