This volume is a companion to the author's previous book on wagons of
the Forest of Dean. It takes a look at all of the known private owner
wagon owners and operators based in Gloucestershire with almost 250
wagons being identified. It is illustrated with over 450 photographs,
items of ephemera and maps, many of which are previously unpublished.
Whilst the majority of the wagons belong to coal merchants there are
also those for quarries, mills, a brewery and chemical works. As well as
identifying the owners, the opportunity has been taken to give as much
detail of their business as possible to give some idea as to how large
the concern was and how long it was in operation. Thus, as well as being
of interest to the private owner wagon enthusiast the volume also gives
much industrial and social history for the county.
