Description

F.J.Moore of Plymouth, 5-plank wagon with Authentic stone load, No.48 (No.38 illustrated)

Dark Red body, white lettering, shaded black

F.J.Moore became the major quarry operators in the Plymouth area in the late 1880’s, with quarries at Cattedown, Prince Rock, Pomphlett, Radford, Billacombe, Elburton, Hooe and Moorcroft. The stone was important for buildings and roadways, as railway ballast, and was even shipped from Radford Quarry across to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in the late C19th and early C20th. This example is almost identical to wagon No.38, which was photographed at Moorcroft Quarry in the 1920s.
