Acquired by the Museum:1989
Current State:As acquired, dismantled
Believed to date from the early years of the century, the Museum was given a selection of parts from two different horse drawn coal carts and a horse drawn grain tanker during 1989. These originated from Issac Lords in Ipswich, and had been dismantled in the late 1930s and stored until given to the Museum. Most of the metal parts were disposed of during the scrap metal drive for World War 2.
