Description

A.T.Frampton, Timber & Slate Importer, and Builders Merchant, Bournemouth, 7-plank wagon on 9' wheelbase, No.13.

Charcoal black body, white lettering.

Almost nothing is known about this trader. From the original photograph, the wagon appears to date from the mid-1890’s, and could have been a product of the Gloucester Carriage & Wagon Works. We surmise that Mr Frampton most likely based this wagon at Bournemouth Goods Yard, adjacent to what is now Bournemouth Central, rather than the S&DJR’s Bournemouth West. By the nature of the business, the wagon is likely to have collected slate and timber loads from Hamworthy, Southampton, and perhaps other ports  further afield without a GWR monopoly, like Sharpness
